DNA Bank

The DNA Bank of The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) serves is the repository for samples of frozen tissue and genomic DNA that are the foundation for research conducted in our molecular systematics and genomics laboratories. These research materials are used by NYBG scientists, students in the Graduate Studies program, visiting scholars, and interns. In support of the NYBG's mission to document biodiversity, the aim of the DNA Bank is to house samples in plant and fungal groups studied by Garden scientists, as well as other taxa from the diverse geographic regions in which NYBG staff works. The DNA Bank will accept existing collections from other institutions and individuals provided that they are relevant to and consistent with our goals, acquisition policy, and that a voucher specimen is deposited in an herbarium with an active loan program, preferably the William and Lynda Steere Herbarium of NYBG. Please make arrangements prior to sending any specimens.
