Collection of Soil Bacteria


The Day of Open Doors at Biological Center of Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic 7. and 8. November 2019

On the occasion of The Day of Open Doors at Biological Center of Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic we presented to pupils and students the collection of soil bacteria and also how to work with bacteria. Students also tried by themselvess some molecular biologic techniques as well as microbiological methods. For example pipetting liquids from isolation kit and inoculating bacteria on plates with solid medium.

How difficult is "to do the science" and am I going to be a scientist?

Support for functioning and popularization of biological collections of CAS

February 2019

Educational popularization program for high school students is focused on the issue of spreading bacterial resistance in the environment. It includes a lecture concluded with a discussion and a visit to the Laboratory of Soil Bacteria of the IPB BC CAS, including the Collection of Soil Bacteria BCCO. In February 2019 the program was attended by 20 students from veterinary school (SOŠ veterinární, mechanizační a zahradnická a Jazyková škola s právem státní jazykové zkoušky v Českých Budějovicích).

As part of the popularization of the Collection of Soil Bacteria, creative scientific workshops were prepared in which visitors could try out the work of a scientist, such as how to isolate individual bacteria. Workshops received many positive feedbacks
