In early 2010, the Bank of Glomeromycota In Vitro (BGIV) has been recorded at the World Data Center for Microorganisms (WDCM), an organization dedicated to registering and maintaining a comprehensive database of culture collections around the world. The World Federation for Culture Collection (WFCC) started this database in the 60's, and today, the WDCM is directed by the National Institute on of Genetics (NIG) in Japan, which until now has 575 registered culture collections from 68 countries. In Argentina, 10 collections have been cataloged and recognized by the WDCM, now including BGIV. The register contains information about the organization, services and scientific interests of BGIV, including a list of species that comprise it.
