NCYC

The National Collection of Yeast Cultures (NCYC), led by Curator Ian Roberts, is the UK's premier collection of yeast cultures, holding over 3400 strains collected over 50 years. We have large collections of brewing yeast, genetically-defined yeast (used in many applications including cancer research), yeast associated with food spoilage and yeast of medical and industrial importance. 

NCYC research has resulted in the development of a series of tools for the identification and characterisation of yeast. NCYC offer a range of services based on these tools, in addition to culture deposit services consulting.
