GGBN Data Standard

Jump to: navigation, search

The Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) is a global network of well-managed collections of genomic tissue samples from across the Tree of Life, benefiting society through biodiversity research, development and conservation. This network will foster collaborations among repositories of molecular biodiversity in order to ensure quality standards, improve best practices, secure interoperability, and harmonize exchange of material in accordance with national and international legislation and conventions.

The GGBN Data Standard is a set of vocabularies designed to represent tissue, DNA or RNA samples associated to voucher specimens, tissue samples and collections.

Introduction

The GGBN Data Standard is based on ABCDDNA, that has been developed within the. The current GGBN Data Standard is a result of further reviews of ABCDDNA done with the GGBN community. The GGBN Data Standard is intended to be used with ABCD or Darwin Core and is not a stand-alone solution! Implementations are now available for both ABCD and DarwinCore-Archive. For ABCD two implementations have been made. One for single species samples ABCDGGBN and one for environmental samples ABCDGGBN-Enviro. The difference here is, that the GGBN extension is connected to the scientific name instead of the whole record. A GGBN-Enviro implementation for Darwin Core-Archive is currently not available.

October 2016: The stable version of the GGBN Data Standard v1.0 can be found at: http://wiki.ggbn.org/ggbn/GGBN_Data_Standard_v1


A list of mandatory and recommended fields for sharing data with GGBN as well as information on how to map your data can be found here.

Please visit this page to find out more about GGBN Data Standard and IPT.

GGBN Data Standard Terms

Loan, Permit, Preparation, and Preservation terms can be used for specimens too and most of them were missing in ABCD/DwC so far. Referencing to underlying specimen or tissue is done by relatedResource (DwC) or UnitAssociation (ABCD) respectively.

NOTE: This is just a summary page of all GGBN Data Standard Terms. Recommendations and examples for using the vocabulary can be found on individual vocabulary pages!
