The Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections genetic resources is a rapidly growing collection of tissue samples with associated vouchers in our divisions. The collection was originally composed primarily of mammal tissues obtained from genetic related projects of researchers at Texas A&M University, but has grown to include fish, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. These materials are maintained in ultracold freezers at -80 degrees Celsius. Records are discoverable via the Global Genomic Biodiversity Network portal.
To request records or a loan of tissues stored at the Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections, contact the curator in charge of the appropriate division.
