CCMP632 was cryopreserved on Feb 3 1999 using 10% DMSO as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 14 days. If interested, please contact the CCMP for the cryopreservation methods (freezing and/or thawing protocols).

Note that aquaculture strains are always maintained as actively growing cultures, even if also cryogenically stored. Therefore, aquaculture strains (see aquaculture express ordering on the CCMP home page) can be shipped immediately upon request.

Q:       The genome sequence is very important for us, which is the strain used in the published article “The Phaeodactylum genome reveals the evolutionary history of diatom genomes”. Would you mind telling me the difference between them.

A:        CCMP632 was deposited in 1986 by Lewin, J.
