On March 23, in order to promote the national biological germplasm and experimental material resource bank special service action plan, Li Wencai, deputy secretary of the party committee of the Institute of Agricultural Resources and Agricultural Regional Planning of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, led the National Bacteria Resource Bank team to investigate industrial strains Resource sub-library (hereinafter referred to as”CICC”), CICC is one of the nine national sub-libraries in the microbiology field of the national bacterial resource library led by the resource planning.
The research team visited the CICC archives, bacteria bank, testing center, etc., and held discussions on microbial resources to serve the country’s major needs. CICC Director Cheng Chi said that CICC has always implemented the”integration, sharing, service, and innovation” policy proposed by the Ministry of Science and Technology, closely following the national strategy, supporting the industrialization of industrial microorganisms in light industrial food and other fields, and has gradually formed itself in recent years. Advantages and characteristics, especially in industry, food microbiological standardization testing and other aspects played an important leading role. Li Wencai pointed out that the National Bacteria Resource Bank is responsible for the integration and sharing of national strategic resources. It needs to target the international frontiers from the industry field, benchmark against national needs, give full play to resource advantages, and support industrial development. All sub-libraries should strengthen communication and exchanges, learn from each other, make progress together, have the courage to take responsibility, work together, and support national strategic security, technological innovation and industrial development from a strategic perspective.
In the symposium, the research team also conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions with CICC experts on topics such as microbial preservation, identification, and information management. This investigation has laid a good foundation for jointly promoting the construction of the microbial germplasm resource sharing service system in the future.
