Cryptococcus sp. Reference Strains

The laboratory standard Cryptococcus sp. reference strains, deposited by K.J. Kwon-Chung, represent the eight molecular types of Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii. These strains are useful tools for the identification of clinical or environmental isolates, and for epidemiological studies.

Eumycetozoan Project Strains

Commonly referred to as "slime molds" and historically studied by mycologists, the Eumycetozoans are a monophyletic group of terrestrial amoeboid protists that produce aerial spore-bearing structures.
