The Culture Collection of Filamentous Fungi IOC (CCFF-IOC/FIOCRUZ) was founded in 1922 with the purpose of preserving specimens of environmental interest. The major activity of the CCFF is to keep the strains available in its collection preserved, with their original biomorphological and genetic characteristics. The collection is directly linked to the Laboratory of Taxonomy, Biochemistry and Bioprospecting Fungi, LTBBF, of IOC, and has approximately 4630 strains, divided into 14 genus and 573 species, representing taxonomic groups belonging to Zygomycota, Ascomycota, Basidiomycota and mostly fungal mitosporics. The strains are derived from several substrates such as soil, air, plant, animal and human materials with diverse geographic representation, being most part from South America.
