The University of Minnesota Mycological Culture Collection was established in 2002, by David J. McLaughlin, Dept. of Plant Biology, and James V. Groth, Dept. of Plant Pathology, St. Paul with support from the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station. The collection is intended to provide a long term repository forliving cultures or spores of fungi that have been the subject of research at the University. The cultures are potentially valuable in agriculture, forestry, mediine, and industry, and as a source of genes for basic and applied research. The facility uses a liquid nitrogen storage system for cultures and lyophilization for spores, and is jointly administered by the Dept. of Plant Biology and the John Ford Bell Museum of Natural History with voucher specimens maintained in thUniversity of Minnesota Herbarium (
