About the TCC -Thonon Culture Collection-
Barcoding data of the TCC collection are available on the R-syst network.
R-syst is a national network of a dozen of research teams of INRA institute, working on molecular and morphological characterisation of organisms.
The objective of the network is to develop a computer tool (for scientists and non-specialists professionals) to enable the identification of species of organisms important for the INRA institute (trees, insects, fungi, micro-algae and bacteria). Its development is based on a network of expertise in taxonomy, molecular biology and bioinformatics.
The TCC is registred into the WDCM: WDCM 1030
The TCC is registred at the Global Registry of Biorepositories http://grbio.org/institution/thonon-culture-collection-umr-carrtel-inra
The TCC is part of the BRC4Env, Biological Resource Centres for the Environment. It aims at storing and providing environmental resources (biological material and associated data), in a secure way and an optimal traceability. BRC4Env is one of the pilar of the French national infrastructure "Agricultural Resources for Research" (AgroBRC-RARe). Presentation of BRC4Env is published: Mougin, C., Artige, E., Marchand, F., Mondy, S., Ratié, C., Sellier, N., Castagnone, P., Coeur D'Acier, A., Esmenjaud, D., Faivre-Primot, C., Granjon, L., Hamelet, V., Lange, F., Pages, S., Rimet, F., Ris, N., Salle, G.
