Natural History Museum, London and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew make their genomic collections discoverable via GGBN

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Natural History Museum, London are proud to announce that in time of the first GGBN conference on June 30th, 2014, a test dataset of tissue and DNA samples is being made available through the GGBN data portal. Further data of both institutions will follow soon. Kew's DNA bank is also available via Kew's web site. This work is part of efforts in the SYNTHESYS project to make partner collections discoverable for research through the Global Genome Biodiversity Network's Data Portal.

The DNA Bank Network is a node of GGBN and hosts the GGBN Data Portal, Library, and Registry.

Banking DNA for Biodiversity Genomics

The main focus of the DNA Bank Network is to enhance taxonomic, systematic, genetic, conservation and evolutionary studies by providing:

• high quality, long-term storage of DNA material on which molecular studies have been performed, so that results can be verified, extended, and complemented,

• complete on-line documentation of each sample, including the provenance of the original material, the place of voucher deposit, information about DNA quality and extraction methodology, digital images of vouchers and links to published molecular data if available.
