Forum on the Future of Microbial Database

Big projects such as Tree of Life or AFTOL are now going on.

According to the new code “International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi and Plants”, new fungal names have to be registered in MycoBank prior to the publication, as of January 2013.

China is currently center of WDCM and enthusiastic to be involved in microbial database projects. Regarding the Convention on Biological Diversity, Nagoya Protocol was adopted at COP10 in Nagoya in 2010, which is still hot news for us.

Under these circumstances, microbial resources and their data are considered to be important for both industry and academia.

We therefore hold Forum on the Future of Microbial Database to discuss how to cope with the current situations of microbiology in terms of their experts and users’ viewpoints.

The forum is to be held in collaboration with the following societies
