An information on the collection of strains of biotechnological application as an integral part of Microalgal Culture Collection of the M.G. Kholodny Institute of Botany of NAS of Ukraine (IBASU-A) is given. The base of its funds contains some green algal strains belonging to the families of Dunaliellaceae, Chlorellaceae, Scenedesmaceae and Selenastraceae. They have been isolated from different regions of Ukraine in order to find cultures of phototrophic microorganisms – promising for biotechnology, in particular, obtaining biologically active additives for the needs of the food industry, medicine, agriculture, raw materials for the production of biofuels, as well as bioindication, biomonitoring, bioremediation of aquatic objects of the environment, etc. Overall, this special collection includs 90 strains of halophile and freshwater microalgae of 30 species, 15 genera, 7 families, 4 orders, 2 classes. All of them are considered as important objects for industrial cultivation, solution of environmental problems, and the basis for further biotechnological research.
