GGBN relies on its strategic partnerships, associated networks, and current funders to fulfill its mission. Contact us at to work with us to strategically increase our collections and reach the research community.

Biobanking and Bioinformatics Partners

Our partners included non-biodiversity biobanks, governmental agencies and other organizations that have an interest in biodiversity biobanks and/or biodiversity informatics. These partners are committed to supporting the goals of GGBN by providing technical expertise and/or participating in GGBN activities.
