DSMZ is Europe’s first Registered Collection

The Leibniz Institute DSMZ is the first biological resource center ever to be entered in the European register of collections, that meet the requirements of the Nagoya Protocol. Customers who order a bacterial strain, fungus, or other microorganism from the DSMZ can be assured they have met the due diligence requirements of the Nagoya Protocol. The Nagoya Protocol has made it considerably more difficult for science to work with biological resources. Many underestimate the additional effort of obtaining Nagoya-related permissions. The DSMZ now relieves its customers of precisely that additional effort. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
