University of Guelph Centre for Biodiversity Genomics - Marine Invertebrates (UOG-BIOUGMI)

The Centre for Biodiversity Genomics (BIOUG) will be releasing data on marine invertebrates to the public domain as the data is published in peer-reviewed journals. Every specimen in the resource 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), permitting the permanent storage, validation and analysis of barcode sequence data and associated specimen metadata.
