Biological resources are fundamental for the economic and social development of the mankind, and their sustainable use and conservation have great importance. Microbial culture collections are now more than repositories and have key roles to play in a wide variety of fields in human life. Therefore, Biological Resource Centres (BRCs) are established to provide reference data and in-depth information of each individual microorganism. Current advanced technology and knowledge in the field of genome analyses can be available as a powerful instrument for studies in food science, animal and plant, medical, environments, etc., and biotechnology. Microbial culture collections will be served to meet the future needs of the world. In these contexts, this lecture aims to introduce the current progress for the isolation, identification and characterization methods of microorganisms in traditional fermented foods and gut microbiota in animals and humans.
