Welcome to Biodiversity of Ciliates

We are a U.S.—Chinese collaboration to create an international Research Coordination Network for
Biodiversity of Ciliates. Our mission is to become an “engine” for generating new collaborations, new
ideas for research projects, new procedures for archiving material, new proposals for research, and new
types of interdisciplinary cooperation.
