Welcome to the Roscoff Culture Collection

The Roscoff Culture Collection (RCC) maintains and distributes approximately 5000 strains of marine microalgae, macroalgae, protists, bacteria and viruses. It is located at the Station Biologique in Roscoff (France) which is run by Sorbonne University and the CNRS. The RCC is part of the European infrastructure EMBRC and the French national infrastructure EMBRC-France.

In addition to services offered for public and private laboratories, the RCC supports schools in carrying out practical work. Pour plus d'information sur la fourniture de souches pour les colleges et lycées cliquez ici…

Please note that due to storm damage the Roscoff server is not currently operational, so we cannot currently receive or send e-mails concerning orders. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope that this situation will be resolved in the next few days.
