Introducing Your New Prokaryotic Species

5/16/2013


For over 85 years, ATCC has been helping scientists store and distribute their prokaryotic strains. In that time we have developed considerable expertise in maintaining the strains deposited with us, but it is up to the depositor to name their species and ensure that the name is recognized by the research community. In this talk, we will go over the deposit and name validation process, providing tips and pointing out potential bumps in the road. You’ll also get a list of essential publications and useful web sites to help you make sure your new species is successfully introduced to the world.
