UTEX 1062
Chlamydomonas smithii

*Cryo Only cultures are strains that are not kept in active circulation and therefore require a 4-week minimum processing time period to thaw, grow out, and check viability before shipment.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 1062
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlamydomonas smithii
Media: Soil Extract
Origin: South Deerfield, Massachusetts, USA
Description of Location: soil from tobacco land
Type Culture: Yes
Collection: K.J. Kucinski (12/27/45)
Isolation: G.M. Smith
Isolator Number: C-1 136f-2(-)
Deposition: R. Hoshaw
Relatives: SAG 54.72; CGC CC-1012; CGC CC-1373
Also Known As: Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [E&S]
Notes: deposited as 8, heterothallic, crosses with UTEX 1061 &89, (Hoshaw & Ettl 1966); 1062 is mating type plus, the original error in mating type identification can be attributed to the early misidentification of the mating types of IUCC 89 and 90, which were used in the study (E. Harris 1984, pers. comm.), (Pröschold et al. 2005)

Cryopreservation Conditions

Temperature: -190 °C
Light source: Not Applicable
Intensity: Not Applicable
Periodicity: Not Applicable

Cryopreservation stabilizes genomic integrity, preserves culture quality, minimizes maintenance costs and reduces the risk of catastrophic loss. A broad variety of techniques employed at the CCAP, at UTEX, and elsewhere, can be found in Day, J.G. and Brand, J.J. Cryopreservation Methods for Maintaining Microalgal Cultures, in Algal Culturing Techniques, ed. R. A. Andersen, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2006. A relatively simple method that uses a minimum of specialized equipment, yet allows a large variety of microalgae to be cryopreserved with high viability, can be found on the Cryopreservation of Microalgae page.
