SYNTHESYS+ creates an integrated European infrastructure for natural history collections. Within SYNTHESYS+, subproject NA3.1, led (for GGBN) by ZFMK, performs a landscape analysis of biodiversity and environmental biobanks and their standards and practices, investigates commonalities and differences, and identifies missing standards.
The various biodiversity biobank types often follow very similar goals, and many parallels exist among their respective practices. However, the dialogue between the various biobank or repository types is limited. We aim at opening up interfaces by collecting and sharing information on workflows and standard operating procedures.
