|Member holdings||The BCCM/MUCL public collection holds over 30.000 strains of filamentous fungi, yeasts and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, representing more than 1.200 genera and 4.000 species of Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes, Glomeromycetes, Oomycetes and Zygomycetes.
BCCM/MUCL includes many types of strains and isolates that have ecological, agro-environmental or biotech interest.
Moreover, BCCM / MUCL houses the Penicillium collection of Prof. P. Biourge (founder of the collection in 1894), the collection of Prof. J.A. Meyer of soil fungi from Central Africa, the general collection of Prof. G.L. Hennebert, the UCL brewery yeast collection as well as an unique collection of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi exclusively cultivated in vitro.
The mycological herbarium contains about 40.000 specimens.
|Research||BCCM/MUCL research is mainly focused on the areas:
Activities typically performed at BCCM/MUCL are oriented towards the
of different fungal groups (lignocellulolytic fungi, fungi involved in food processing and spoilage, fermentative yeasts, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, fungal pathogens in tropical environments).
|Quality Management System||For accession, control, preservation, storage and supply of biological material, the ISO 9001:2015 certification has been obtained.|
