    RCC Outlook 2020 ▪ CRBM ▪ LEDs for 4°C, 15°

    and 22° C rooms ▪ Quality Management / Traceability ▪ ISO9001 certification for joint EMBRC-France BRC by end 2020 ▪ Application for EU Register of ABS compliant collections ▪ Cryopreservation ▪ Continue cryopreserving strains for which protocol is OK ▪ Test new protocols for cryo-recalcitrant strains (diatoms, dinoflagellates,…) ▪ DB / website ▪ Makeover, improved stats, inclusion of BLAST tool (already paid) ▪ New logo ! ▪ Training course ▪ Basic 3 day culturing/identification course in May 2020 ▪ Projects ▪ Moore Foundation – Microalgal transformation, collaboration Banyuls (until November 2020) ▪ EBB, ASSEMBLE+ (ABS, CRB management) ▪ Current applications: ANR2020, H2020 screening, Moore symbiosis
