In the context of open science, the availability of research materials is essential for knowledge accumulation and to maximize the impact of scientific research. In microbiology, microbial domain biological resource centres (mBRCs) have a long-standing experience in preserving and distributing authenticated microbial strains and genetic materials (e.g., recombinant plasmids, DNA libraries) to support new discoveries and follow-on studies. These culture collections play a central role in the conservation of microbial biodiversity and have expertise in cultivation, characterization and taxono…
