Permits the use of samples and data by providing standardized access to genome-quality samples and related data. The GGBN Data Portal (i) allows a quick assessment of whether adequate samples are available and accessible for a specific project, (ii) identifies gaps in current sampling of a tree based on combined taxonomic backbones, and (iii) guides future strategic sampling, thus providing the necessary tools to save the genetic blueprint of threatened biodiversity.
