Between 22 and 25th May 2018 the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) holds its third international conference "GGBN 2018" at Boku.

The international network of 71 institutions is an initiative to conserve biodiversity and to preserve the genomic diversity of the Tree of Life. GGBN provides a platform for biodiversity repositories from across the world to collaborate, ensuring quality standards for DNA and tissue collections, standards for genomic samples, improving best practices for the preservation and use of such collections, and harmonizing the exchange of material in accordance with national and international legislation and conventions. The meeting will focus on topics related to the exploration of the wealth of diversity that is stored in biodiversity biobanks worldwide and their characterization by state-of-the-art genomic, phenomic and molecular tools.
