Smithsonian: A First: New Website Reveals Origin Of Genetic Samples And Date Collected. “For the first time, a new public database will link genetic data with records of where and when the samples it was taken from were collected, making it easier for researchers to share and reuse genetic data for environmental and ecological analyses. The resource, called the Genomic Observatories Metadatabase (GeOMe), was developed by researchers at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in collaboration with researchers at California State University Monterey Bay5, UC Berkeley and six other museums and research institutions.”
