The Korean agricultural culture collection (KACC) has developed a web-based system to provide an integrated database about microbial resources containing 12,924 registered cultures of microorganisms. This system- service platform consists of three major functions, namely microorganism search, ordering and deposit. In 2009, we newly registered 3,039 microbial resources and distributed the 3,992 strains using this system. This system services a function to secure on the registration and distribution, and analysis platform to provide information for curated microbial resources by KACC.


Key words: Korean agricultural culture collection, microbial resources, integrated service, microorganism information.
