One of the main objectives of the BCCM/IHEM fungal culture collection is the long-term preservation of interesting strains to ensure their availability for the scientific community at large. The viability, purity and identity of a strain is verified before entering the collection, but also after lyophilisation or cryopreservation. For filamentous fungi, these routine identity checks are traditionally done based on morphological analyses, and DNA sequencing if necessary. This requires extensive taxonomical expertise, and is time consuming and costly. The BCCM/IHEM collection evaluated matrix…
