Brazilian Marine Biodiversity Database


"Brazilian Marine Biodiversity database (BaMBa) is a national open data infrastructure. Datasets obtained from integrated holistic studies, comprising physical-chemical parameters, -omics, microbiology, benthic and fish surveys can be deposited enabling scientific, industrial, and governmental policies and actions on marine resources uses and management. BaMBa is an initiative of National Research Network in Marine Biotechnology (Biotecmar) and is funded by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Tecnology and Inovation (MCTI) and hosted in the National Laboratory of Scientific Computing (LNCC). This ensures the preservation, access, use and reuse of multi-scale, multi-discipline, and multi-national science data via three primary cyberinfrastucture elements and a broad education and outreach program. BaMBa is connected to other national and international databases: Information system on Brazilian biodiversity (SiBBr), Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) and Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) allowing rapid retrieval of information from any location in the Globe."
