ABSTRACT The U.S. Culture Collection Network held a meeting to share information about how culture collections are responding to the requirements of the recently enacted Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The meeting included representatives of many culture collections and other biological collections, the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of… Expand
Implementation of the Nagoya Protocol within the Collection of Institut Pasteur
TLDR
Accessing resources from a registered collection is that users of genetic resources will be considered as having exercised ‘due diligence’ if they source their genetic resources from these collections, which could facilitate the process for scientists when applying for research funding. Expand
Strengthening mycology research through coordinated access to microbial culture collection strains
Well-managed genetic resources and associated metadata are essential to underpin research addressing the challenges to food security, healthcare, climate change, biodiversity, environment, educationExpand
Why the Nagoya Protocol to the Convention on Biological Diversity Matters to Science and Industry Everywhere
The once customary view that genetic resources, together with associated traditional knowledge, constituted the “Common Heritage of Mankind” was first directly challenged in 1962, when the UnitedExpand
Access to genetic resources and benefit sharing: Implications of Nagoya Protocol on providers and users.
The Nagoya Protocol is a comprehensive framework aimed at combating biopiracy (where genetic resources are utilised without the provider State's consent or in violation of mutually agreed contractualExpand
Earth BioGenome Project: Sequencing life for the future of life
TLDR
A perspective on the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), a moonshot for biology that aims to sequence, catalog, and characterize the genomes of all of Earth’s eukaryotic biodiversity over a period of 10 years, is presented. Expand
Public Microbial Resource Centers: Key Hubs for Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) Microorganisms and Genetic Materials
TLDR
This review describes the unique position of mBRCs in microbiology and molecular biology through their history, evolving roles, expertise, services, challenges, and international collaborations and calls for an increased deposit of strains and genetic resources. Expand
Biological control and the Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit sharing – a case of effective due diligence
TLDR
A lot of time is lost on both sides (National authorities and scientists seeking information), and the process would benefit from streamlining, such as how to deal with the generation digital sequence information and what specific activities are considered utilisation, especially for biological control. Expand
New ECCO model documents for Material Deposit and Transfer Agreements in compliance with the Nagoya Protocol
TLDR
Two new model documents for Material Deposit Agreement and Material Transfer Agreement are presented designed to enable microbial culture collection leaders to draft appropriate agreement documents for deposit and supply of materials from a public collection. Expand
Historical perspectives and new opportunities for Australian collections of microorganisms in the microbiome era
A new microbiology support program for Australian microbial resources centres is essential to take full advantage of the exciting information and biological materials emerging from molecular studiesExpand
Tapping Diversity From the Wild: From Sampling to Implementation
TLDR
How technological advances in genomics, phenomics, biotechnology, and data science can improve the ability to identify beneficial genetic variation in CWRs and to exploit it in strive for higher-yielding and sustainable crops is discussed. Expand

Explanation of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing and its implication for microbiology.
TLDR
Working with genetic resources and associated data requires greater attention since the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing came into force in October 2014, and microbiologists and culture collections alike need to be aware of the legislation of the source country of the materials they use and put in place best practices for compliance. Expand
An evaluation of the status of living collections for plant, environmental, and microbial research
TLDR
To assess the sustainability of collections, a survey was distributed to collection scientists whose responses provide a benchmark for evaluating the resiliency of these collections and among the key observations were that plant collections have larger staffing requirements and that living microbe collections were the most vulnerable to retirements or other disruptions. Expand
The Nagoya Protocol Applied to Microbial Genetic Resources
Abstract This chapter overviews the role of Culture Collections (CCs) in the effective implementation of the “Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS)” quid pro quo: benefit sharing with providers in returnExpand
Best practices for the use and exchange of invertebrate biological control genetic resources relevant for food and agriculture
TLDR
This best practices guide for the use and exchange of invertebrate biological control genetic resources for the biological control community of practice is prepared to demonstrate due diligence in responding to access and benefit sharing requirements, and to reassure the international community that biological control is a very successful and environmentally safe pest management method based on the use of biological diversity.

The Bonn guidelines on access to genetic resources and benefit sharing
In 2002, State parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (the CBD) formally adopted the Bonn Guidelines on Access to Genetic Resources and Fair and Equitable Sharing of the Benefits ArisingExpand
Plant pathogen culture collections: it takes a village to preserve these resources vital to the advancement of agricultural security and plant pathology.
TLDR
A number of measures for improving pathogen culture collections are proposed, including a plan to use the sequenced isolate as a reference to understand the genetic and phenotypic diversity within a pathogen species. Expand
The heterogeneity of public ex situ collections of microorganisms: Empirical evidence about conservation practices, industry spillovers and public goods
TLDR
A unique worldwide survey of microbial collections is used to analyse the heterogeneity among culture collections, and to empirically assess the economic and institutional conditions that contribute to this heterogeneity with respect to conservation choice and associated industry spillovers. Expand
A Review of Living Collections with Special Emphasis on Sustainability and Its Impact on Research Across Multiple Disciplines
TLDR
Formal living collections have unique characteristics that distinguish them from other types of biorepositories, and molecular, genetic, and whole genome sequence analysis of contents of microbes and other living resource collections bring additional value to living collections. Expand
A Review of Living Collections with Special Emphasis on Sustainability and Its Impact on Research Across Multiple Disciplines
TLDR
Funding for living collections is a continuing challenge and threatens to create a two-tier system where medically relevant collections are well funded and all other collections are underfunded and hence understaffed. Expand
