Biological Cultures Service

The Biological Cultures Service (CBCS) is a CicCartuja scientific service, directed and advised by the Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Photosynthesis.

This service is mainly oriented to the maintenance and growth, with scientific research proposals, of photosynthetic organisms, such as eukaryotic microalga and cyanobacteria. For that, the service maintains collections of these types of microorganisms for use by the scientific community in general. In addition, the service supplies to the members of the Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Photosynthesis with competent cells of several strains of the enterobacteria Escherichia coli for use in molecular biology.
