Exchanges of biological resources have occurred since the beginning of civilization and archiving microbial resources has been advantageous in understanding the impacts of microorganisms on human, animal and plant health, research, education and biotechnological advances. Strain collections provide repositories for the exchange of microbial materials and data, as well as services to health, research and biotechnology clients. An essential component for effective archiving and exchange of reliable reference materials is the development of methods for cultivating and maintaining microorganisms, the reliable authentication of reference strains, while recognizing bio-safety and bio-security issues. Furthermore, biological resource centers are faced with challenges in recognizing the interests of global biological commons with those of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
