- Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) Culture Collection for Polar Microorganisms
(KCCPM) is the culture collection for polar algae. Since 1989, we have collected various
psychrophilic polar organisms including microalgae and macroalgae near King Sejong
Station, Maxwell Bay, King George Island in the Antarctic, and more recently near Dasan
Station, Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard in the Arctic. We maintains around 170 strains from
Antarctic and Arctic, the preponderance marine diatoms, and we also keep up some
chlorophytes, cyanophytes, small flagellates, and freshwater organisms as well. From
these collections, we have cultivated in the 2℃ culture room with LED lights consisting
of three single wavelength red (660nm), green (530nm) and blue (460nm). We have assessed
the diversity of psychrophilic polar diatoms cultivated in the KCCPM and attempted to
establish phylogenetic relationships among the diverse micro-algae based on light
microscopic and electron microscopic observations as well as molecular investigations.
An important consequence of our results is the establishment of a database for
psychrophilic polar micro-algae based on morphological observations and molecular
investigations in the KCCPM.
