MorphBank: An Open Web Repository for Biological Images.
MANY biological disciplines draw important conclusions from images. These disciplines include comparative morphology, anatomy, and histology, morphological phylogenetics, taxonomy, and paleobiology. However, many of these images cannot be published due to page constraints in journals, and thus they are not widely available. MorphBank is for these images what GenBank is for genetic data - an easily accessed storehouse with added functionality tailored to the disciplines using the resource. This workshop will introduce participants to MorphBank, particularly what the technology now offers to morphological phylogenetics and the remote annotation of natural history specimens. Participants will be guided through the MorphBank interface, including the submission and annotation of images and the creation of access privileges for collaborations at early stages. This is a great opportunity for potential users to view and comment on the design of this emerging resource.
