DBG Tissue and DNA Bank

Latest version published by VertNet on Nov 6, 2017 VertNet

The Denver Botanic Gardens' Tissue and DNA Bank is primarily comprised of silica-gel dried plant tissue samples representing over 270 populations of more than 80 species as well as approximately 8,000 DNA samples. Plants represented are typically from the Southern Rocky Mountain Region and are often rare or infrequent species. The number of tissue and DNA samples of fungal species is expected to grow.
