The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) has published a report shedding light on the returns yielded by investments in their data infrastructure. The report, titled “Unveiling the Value: The Return on Investments in GBIF,” highlights the wide-ranging impact of GBIF’s efforts on both scientific advancement and societal progress.
There is now an updated version of a guide to publishing sequence-based data. It is a practical guide for holders of genomic and metagenomic information, to include recommendations for sharing occurrence records based on DNA-based studies of the world’s oceans and seas.
