Any good source to get unique bacteria by pure culturing for

Postby lalithaniharika » Sat Oct 01, 2011 7:00 pm

I need some pure culture of bacteria to perform all experiments like staining, growth rate measurement, biochemical tests for activities etc.... throughout the year.So I want to isolate some unique type of bacteria.It is better if they have more features like endospore production etc..so that I can get results for all the experiments.They should be growing fast.I should be able to maintain them easily without the help of fridge or incubator.It is better if I know what result I have to get after doing test before doing it.So anyone please suggest me any good source, some characters of the colonies of bacteria.(and also name of that bacteria if possible)

E.coli is quite easily obtainable :)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I sourced some bacteria (E.Coli) from my local university, they were happy to help as I knew someone from my studies. Is this possible?
