Cryopreservation of Algae

EBB, together with ASSEMBLE Plus project, has supported a research work, which has resulted in a book chapter on the cryopreservation of algae.

Its authors, Estefania Paredes, Angela Ward, Ian Probert, Léna Gouhier and Christine N. Campbell, have just published (August 2020) it within the book entitled Cryopreservation and Freeze-Drying Protocols (Springer Link).

This chapter provides protocols for cryopreservation of different types of algae cultures, ensuring a provision of marine biological resources and a long-term ex-situ storage, making possible their use for public and private sector research and education.

Society for Cryobiology Annual Meeting 2020

Dr. Estefanía Paredes from University of Vigo submitted a video poster for the Virtual CRYO_2020. The Cryobiology community deals with biobanking and there is a strong international collaboration therefore this was very useful information for the community that needs to know the basics about ABS and where to find all the information needed to comply.
