Bringing together the UK’s expert centres in biological resource curation
The United Kingdom Biological Resource Centre Network (UKBRCN) has launched its new website. The site brings together information from the 14 partner collections including links to the individual culture collections databases, collection news, events and vacancies, and up to date guidance and recent publications. It is hoped that the website will assist the UKBRCN in achieving its aim of fostering active collaborative links within the biological resource community.

The UKBRCN was originally established to coordinate the activities of the UK national service collections of microbial organisms. The UK has a thriving medical and life sciences research and development community and biological resource centres play an important role in providing researchers with a wide range of authentic biological cultures for their research.
