The Global Genome Biodiversity Network is an international network of institutions that share an interest in long-term preservation of genomic samples representing the diversity of non-human life on Earth. GGBN provides a platform for biodiversity biobanks from across the world to:

  • Collaborate to ensure consistent quality standards for DNA and tissue collections,
  • Improve best practices for the preservation and use of such collections and
  • Harmonize exchange and use of material in accordance with national and international legislation and conventions.

The Global Genome Biodiversity Network provides its members with the primary benefit of making their DNA and tissue collections discoverable for research through a networked community of biodiversity biobanks. In doing so, GGBN provides trusted and transparent access to genomic samples for all, through an access and benefit sharing framework.
