The NCTC collection supports laboratories and research institutions of veterinary importance worldwide. Recently,17 novel strains isolated from animals of different origin have been deposited into the NCTC collection from the US Food and Drug Administration research laboratory. These includes novel species of the genus Mycoplasma, Acholeplasma and Ureaplasma. These strains have been characterized phenotypically and genotypically and compared to other established species of the same genus. Study of these novel strains is crucial for understanding the phylogeny and to learn about the impact on their host by establishing if they serve as a part of normal flora or a pathogen.
