Ocean Genome Resource- genomic DNA available

Last updated about 2 years ago

The Ocean Genome Legacy is a non-profit marine research organization and biological specimen repository dedicated to exploring and preserving the wealth of information contained in the genes (DNA) of endangered, rare, unusual and ecologically critical marine organisms. Its mission is to acquire, authenticate, study, preserve, develop, and distribute genetic materials, biological specimens, information, technology, and standards needed to advance basic and applied non-commercial research. By providing secure storage and broad public access to genomic materials and a forum for sharing samples, data, and ideas, the Ocean Genome Resource collection aims to serve as a catalyst for research that can help to protect marine ecosystems and improve the human condition.
