WFCC-MIRCEN World Data Centre for Microorganisms (WDCM) was set up as a data center of the World Federation for Culture Collections (WFCC). The WDCM plays a crucial role in providing a database of microorganisms, analysis of the function and establishing a platform of international communication. Until now, 713 culture collections in 71 countries have registered in WDCM, submitting 2.5 million strains. WFCC Global Catalogue of Microorganisms (GCM) is expected to be a robust, reliable and user-friendly system to help culture collections to manage, disseminate and share the information related to their holdings. 76 international culture collections from 35 countries are sharing their 345,565 strains information GCM which provides concrete, scientific, economic and intellectual property certainty for users through its use of unique identifiers and an almost exhaustive database holding all key information relating to each organism and strain. WDCM has good collaborations with the microbiologists and taxonomists in the IMCAS as well as other international institutes and organizations. As the host organization of WDCM, Institute of Microbiology has a lot of scientists with high international reputation who can provide local oversight during the development process of WDCM.
