CCAP has accumulated a wealth of resources about the strains we maintain, ranging from information on their provenance, their properties, images, genetic sequences and references from the scientific literature where the strains have been used. Accessible too from this page are methods relating to strain culture, isolation, cryopreservation and media recipes. More will be added as the resource continues to grow. We are starting to produce and upload short videos demonstrating some of the methods and techniques we use.
Short videos demonstrating some of our subculturing techniques:
- Subculturing amoebae using block transfer method
- Subculturing amoebae using wash method
- Subculturing cyst-forming amoebae
- Subculturing small seaweeds
