GGBN Material Sample Vocabulary

From TDWG Terms Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Principal usage: The GGBN Material Sample Vocabulary is meant to be used with a 1:1 relation for 1 tissue, or DNA record. Within a Darwin Core-Archive implementation it has to be used with the new defined Material Sample Core (not Occurrence Core). Together with Darwin Core and GBIF team we decided to keep the Material Sample extension separate from the Material Sample Core. Within ABCD please use the ABCDGGBN implementation. GGBN requirements and recommendations for usage and example content will follow soon.

Description: These terms has been developed for specific GGBN purposes but can be used in other molecular context. The material sample vocabulary terms are specific to basic lab facts about a physical DNA or tissue sample. It also contains terms from MIxS. The vocabulary is still under review. We appreciate any input or feedback. To do so please contact the GGBN secretariat at ggbn[at]
