Newest Members of the NCMA Collection.

The NCMA collection has actively grown through contributions from you the user community.  Recently Dr. Tatiana Rynearson of the University of Rhode Island contributed 25 strains of diatoms isolated from waters around the Antarctic continent.  These strains, and their new CCMP strain numbers, are listed in the table below.  These strains make a significant addition to our 'polar' sub-collection and are ready to support your research.
