    Description: The Museum of Southwestern Biology (MSB) is a research natural history collection at the University of New Mexico. The museum consists of seven divisions (Amphibians and Reptiles, Arthropods, Birds, Fishes, Genomic Resources, Herbarium, Mammals, and Parasites) and the Natural Heritage New Mexico program. Specimens span the last 120 years and represent biodiversity change across the globe (primarily western North America, Central and South America, but with significant holdings from Asia, Africa, Australia and Europe). Web-accessible archives and databases contribute to applied efforts in conservation as well as theoretical advances related to unraveling the complexity of planetary life and related ecosystem function on local, regional, and global scales. Active research and graduate programs build comprehensive and integrated collections and then explore the breadth and depth of these samples and data. MSB Curators, Collection Managers, and an army of students strive to make these valuable collections accessible to UNM, to the broader scientific community, and to the general public. The MSB is heavily involved with municipal, state and federal agencies. MSB has built a strong tradition in the public health arena in efforts related to identifying zoonotic pathogens and understanding the ecology of zoonotic diseases and wildlife diseases in the western US. International organizations also rely on MSB collection data and expertise to help them design and implement public health initiatives.

    Access rights: All tissue grants are approved by individual collections. Please see the appropriate collection’s webpage for information on requesting specimen loans and tissue grants. Qualified researchers may request limited grants of tissue from UAM. Use of these samples depletes them. Guidelines for requesting tissue grants have been developed to ensure both short- and long-term availability and integrity of these irreplaceable resources. Tissue grants are intended to supplement material previously obtained through collecting and/or loans from other museums, not to provide all the samples necessary for any project.

    Rights: Please see the appropriate collection’s webpage for information on collection rights.

    Description: The University of Alaska Museum of the North\'s Genomic Resources facility contains over 200,000 tissue samples from voucher specimens archived in the Mammalogy, Ornithology, Ichthyology and Entomology collections. Collection holdings can be searched on Arctos, a Collaborative Collection Management Solution. The geographic and taxonomic composition of the tissue collection is largely determined by the research interests of the museum curators and other local and regional biologists conducting research that involves specimen collection. It is the largest collection of such material from Alaskan species, with tissue samples dating back to 1936, though preserving fresh tissue did not become standard practice until the early 1990s. The storage facility consists of eight liquid nitrogen-cooled cryovats that maintain vapor-phase nitrogen at -170C (-274F).

    Description: The Centre for Biodiversity Genomics (CBG) at the University of Guelph is spearheading a novel approach to biodiversity research within Canada and internationally. Its three research units -- CBG Collections, CBG Genomics (or the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding, CCDB) and CBG Informatics -- are advancing 21st century biodiversity science by enabling species identification and discovery that is based on the analysis of sequence diversity in short, standardized gene regions, DNA barcodes. CBG Collections maintains a globally unique natural history collection of 3.3 million specimens. Every specimen is digitized, and the exact storage location of each specimen is tracked in a collection management information system for quick reference and retrieval. The databased information for every voucher is also archived in the Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD; www.boldsystems.org), permitting the permanent storage, validation and analysis of barcode sequence data and associated specimen metadata. Most (88.6%) of the specimens have been DNA barcoded, and a few representatives of every species have been digitally imaged. The CCDB holds high quality DNA extracts in a secure 2000 ft2 ultra-cold freezer bank. These DNA extracts reflect residual material following the barcode analysis of samples; it contains 5.3 million extracts from over 250,000 species derived from 231 countries, oceans and dependent territories, all connected to a voucher specimen on BOLD.

        Description: HNHM is one of the outstanding institutions of the Hungarian cultural and scientific life. It is one of the largest natural history collections among the Central and Eastern European institutions, comprising more than 10.1 million items, among them 200,000 type specimens including 44,110 primary types. They hold the most important reference and historical collections for the entire Carpathian Basin, major portions of the Balkans, C, E and SE Asia. HNHM holds important 200-300 years old historical collections. The best represented areas are the Palaearctic, Oriental and Ethiopian biogeographic regions, and in case of soil animals also the tropical part of S America. The collections are well organised so the desired specimens or taxa can easily be retrieved. The Bird, Mammal, Anthropological, Mineralogical, and parts of the Invertebrate collections were recently moved into state-of-the-art storage areas, which provide an excellent environment for preservation and improved the access to the collections. The staff are leading experts in their fields thus represent rare or unique expertise in Europe, which is demonstrated by our involvement in establishing NATURA 2000 and National Biodiversity-monitoring System (NBmR), LIFE+ and LIFE IP programs, European fauna monographs, Balkan flora monographs, EU-COST Actions, etc. Consultation with phytosanitary and quarantine specialists is part of the HNHM core work. The library with more than 300,000 volumes is the nationally recognized centre for natural history and it holds one of the most important archives for natural historians in Central and Eastern Europe.

          Description: The Institute of Vertebrate Biology performs basic research of vertebrates with the following research topics: - Biological diversity at molecular, organismal and community level. Evolutionary relationship among populations and species, natural hybrid zones and speciation. - Population dynamics, changes and trends of the community structure in natural and disturbed habitats, including modelling and prognoses. - Physiological, behavioural, ecological and evolutionary mechanisms of the life histories of vertebrates with respect to their ontogenetic development. Reproductive strategies, survival rates, feeding behaviour, and inter- and intraspecific interactions. - Ectoparasites of higher vertebrates and their role as hosts, vectors and reservoirs of human and animal diseases in natural foci. The aim of the investigations is to achieve original data about free-living vertebrates concerning their genetic, population and species diversity, phylogeny, population dynamics, interactions with environment, and association with human and animal microbial pathogens.

            DNA & Tissue Collection:

            Title: Tissue and DNA Collection (Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History)

            Description: The museum’s genetic resource collections began more than 40 years ago as curator-driven research material. Over time, we realized that dispersed collections are vulnerable to equipment failures and sample mismanagement or loss. Therefore, we began an organized effort to centralize these collections, first within some research departments, and then throughout the museum. In 2010 NMNH constructed a biorepository, which began receiving collections in 2011. The current capacity is approximately 4.2 million 2 ml cryovials that are housed in 76 ultra-cold mechanical and liquid nitrogen freezers and a small number of refrigerators. All cold storage units are monitored constantly for performance. NMNH uses a modified version of FreezerPro (Ruro.com) to maintain and track inventory. FreezerPro is connected via an Application Programming Interface (API) to KE EMu, the museum’s catalog system. EMu provides a limited form of the catalog information to allow easier identification of samples. Each vial is assigned a locally unique Biorepository Number by FreezerPro to facilitate a unified system for locating and identifying samples. The collection includes insects, birds, terrestrial plants, marine and terrestrial invertebrates, algae, fish, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, bacteria and protozoans. Current strengths are in bird, marine and terrestrial mammal, and insect holdings, although significant projects have been initiated that will broaden and deepen the taxonomical representation as well as environments. Human tissues, commercial, and agricultural products are not a part of the collection. A complete inventory of all holdings is underway. The entire collection presently numbers more than 250,000 and could be twice that number. All these materials are available for use in genomic research, toxicology studies and environmental monitoring.

                              DNA & Tissue Collection:

                              Title: DNA & Tissue Bank

                              Description: The DNA bank at Kew is the largest of its kind in the world, with more than 40,000 accessions of plant genomic DNA, representing about 32,500 species of vascular plants, almost 6,000 genera and most families. Because the bank reflects the different projects that were conducted in the lab since its establishment, the orchid collection is particularly well represented with more than 5,500 species, about a quarter of all orchid species known to science. The main sources of new DNA samples routinely included in the bank come from projects either lead by Kew scientists or undertaken by visiting researchers in collaboration with Kew staff. Kew

                              Related collections: The collection also include about 1500 silica-gel dried samples; this part of the collection is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years ( ca. 5000 accessions per year).

                              Description: RBG Kew can be considered unique among botanic gardens and museums because of its size, history and scope. It is an international visitor attraction and a world-acclaimed scientific institution holding the world's largest collections of plants and fungi, living and preserved, and major databases of plant biodiversity data. RBG Kew's primary focus is science-based conservation to enhance the quality of life. This involves an ongoing mix of basic and applied science, mostly focused on collections and associated databases. The breadth of RBG Kew's plant collections is matched by the scope of its international partnerships and unparalleded access to plant science expertise around the globe. RBG Kew conducts research into many seemingly "blue skies" areas but differs in the applications of the data produced by such enquiries to problems in managing effective conservation programmes in the field and restoring and/or repairing sites damaged by human activity and climate change. This is the basis for our claim to be a "science-based conservation organisation working on the world stage".

                                    Rights: The mission of CPMA - Collection of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants is collection, identification, preservation and exchange of biological species with potential application in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetics industries. CPMA has a strong involvement in scientific research and technology development, using techniques and processes that certify the quality of the biological material are in accordance with the Brazilian laws, regulations and policies.

                                    Description: CPMA was established in 1989, at CPQBA - Chemical, Biological and Agricultural Pluridisciplinary Research Center, at UNICAMP - Campinas State University, in the city of Paulinia, State of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The first species were donated by the University of Brasilia and CENARGEN – Genetic Resources and Biotechnology Research Center of EMBRAPA – Brazilian National Agricultural Research Company. Since then, the Collection has received donations from various research institutions, private farmers and kept samplings from several research projects The Collection has approximately 3.000 specimens (650 species and 78 botanical families) of wild and domesticated medicinal and aromatic plants from different regions of Brazil and the world. CPMA is one of the main bases for scientific research and technology development by CPQBA-UNICAMP and Brazilian and International partner institutions. The species arrive at the Collection, in most cases, with information on their biological characteristics and folk uses, what supports research and development, processes of domestication and scientific evaluation. All information is available in a database online documentation with photos; the data are available in Splink and IABIN network. CPMA is approved since 2005 as a Trusted Biorepository by the Brazilian Federal Environment Ministry and became an associate member of the GGBN - Global Genomic Biodiversity Network in 2014.

                                    Description: The University of Kansas Ichthyology frozen tissue collection continues to expand rapidly and has broad representation of both marine and freshwater fish diversity - 11,000 individual tissue samples from 2384 taxa (297 families and 1077 genera) and 38 countries (Australia, Belize, Ethiopia, Fiji, Nepal, Seychelles, South Africa and Tonga etc., as well as oceanic localities). The collections and the scope of research activities in the division continue to grow due to the ongoing activities of ichthyology staff and students. The collection is used by national and international researchers as well as by state and federal agencies. The Division of Ichthyology is designated as a Regional Center in the Midwest and Great Plains Regions (Collette & Lachner 1976, Copeia 1976: 625-642; Poss and Collette 1995, Copeia 1995: 48-70) and is among the top twenty ichthyological collections in the country. Almost 60% of the specimens in the collection are from the Great Plains Region. The collection is an important resource for anyone interested in the region’s fishes. The data concerning these faunas are not extensively duplicated by other ichthyological collections. The tissue collection comprises tissue samples originally collected in liquid nitrogen, DMSO and ethanol and stored in state-of-the-art liquid nitrogen dewars at -170°C. The tissues are made up mostly of muscle tissue but also includes, liver and other internal organs, fin clips and whole specimens. A large proportion of our collection has vouchers held either at KU or at other collections. The provenance of these vouchers is indicated in the database

                                    Description: The KU Biodiversity Institute studies the life of the planet for the benefit of the Earth and its inhabitants. The institute, including the KU Natural History Museum, accomplishes this mission through the acquisition, curation and study of collections of plants, animals, fossil material and cultural artifacts for undergraduate, graduate and public education, as well as research and public and professional service. The Biodiversity Institute’s worldwide collection of almost 9 million specimens and 1.2 million archeological artifacts encompass the study of archaeology, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, mammals, plants, parasites, insects, and fossil plants and animals. More than 100 research scientists and graduate students in the institute study the species, ecosystems, evolution and cultures of the planet. They use this information to model and forecast environmental phenomena that are critical to human well-being, including threatened and endangered species, the potential spread of diseases and pest species, and the effect of climate change on Earth’s biodiversity and habitats. The KU Natural History Museum is home to four floors of public exhibits including the historic Panorama; live snakes and insects; vertebrate and invertebrate fossils; parasites and microbes; and the flora and fauna of the Great Plains. The museum provides content-rich, hands-on informal science learning for school groups in grades K–12. These programs have reached more than 40,000 participants over the past decade. The museum also offers a wide range of public programs and events.
