In order to better promote sharing and application of microbial resource information in developing countries, WDCM will hold the training course on management and application of microbial data resource during Sep 6- Sep 23. Developing countries are rich in microbial resources; however there are considerable gaps in terms of data management and sharing of resources in these counties. This training course, opening to members of WFCC from developing countries, aims to help the staff of these countries’ culture collections thoroughly acquire knowledge on microbial culture collection and taxonomic experiment skills, learn about the development trend and technical advancement in the field of microbiological informatics, learn to manipulate microbial resource databases and their management platforms, and master other informational technique as well.
