Sep 30, 2009 Significant mark of 10.000 DNA samples surpassed

Today the significant mark of 10.000 fully documented DNA samples has been surpassed. Thereby, DNA samples of more than 6000 species from 156 different countries are available via the webportal. After launching its searchable database in April 2009 the partners of the DNA Bank Network continuously proceeded in their efforts to deposit DNA samples physically and informatically linked to their respective specimens.
