ATCC announces the creation of the Biomaterial Contributor Network (BCN). In collaboration with leading research institutions ATCC has developed a simple, streamlined material deposit process for new microbial strains and cell lines. The BCN enables member institutions to create a lasting impact on science around the globe by making these important research materials available to future generations of scientists through the ATCC. Additionally, member institutions have the opportunity to receive a share of the revenue generated from the sale and / or licensing of materials developed at their institution. Hundreds of unique biological materials have been deposited under these agreements to date. Join today!
