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

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.
