Abstract Detail

Botanical DNA Banking and the Systematics Community: Working Together to Meet Future Research Challenges

Campbell, Lisa M [1], Tulig, Melissa [1].

The Tissue and DNA Repository at The New York Botanical Garden.

DNA sequence data are routinely utilized in phylogenetic, systematic, biodiversity, barcoding, conservation, and genomic research. Repositories of tissues and genomic DNA samples provide a valuable source of specially prepared, readily available research materials for current and future research. The Tissue and DNA Repository at The New York Botanical Garden constitutes a portion of the diverse laboratory collections that support plant and fungal biodiversity research. Our experience with physically and electronically curating botanical and fungal samples of silica-dried tissue and genomic DNA and uniting these data with voucher herbarium specimen data and images will be presented. Suggestions for greater interoperability amongst repositories for future growth and efficient use of collections will be presented.
