Mikroorganisme, FORKOMIKRO, Katalog, Koleksi, Indonesia


Access to information about microorganisms is essential for Aexpanding our knowledge of their diversity, enabling us to make sustainable use of them, and achieving the benefits they provide to our society. This catalog was compiled by the FORKOMIKRO team and is an update from the previous 3 editions. The book contains more than 4500 entries of microorganisms from 5 collectors in Indonesia, i.e., InaCC, IPBCC, MUICC, UNJCC and UIMCC.
The catalog provides well-standardized microbial collections, which is very useful for research and development. This book is also enriched with information including a brief history, source, localization, and cultivation of each microorganism to help microbiologists and readers understand the diversity of microorganisms and their conservation.
