MSB Division of Genomic Resources

The University of New Mexico (UNM) Museum of Southwestern Biology (MSB) Division of Genomic Resources (DGR) is a cryogenic archive of tissue samples from vertebrates, invertebrates, parasites and DNA from other MSB divisions and outside collections.

The collection currently contains over 500,000 samples from about 175,000 individuals.  It is worldwide in scope with particularly strong holdings of mammalian tissue from taxa of the Southwestern United States, Beringia, and Latin America.  Specimen data is available through the multi-institution, multi-collection museum database Arctos.
