Improve access to virtual and new physical collections by making all data outputs freely available and open access. For peer-to-peer use the key portal for specimen data will be GBIF. For a wider audience including the public and media the newly accessible data will be made available on established open access outlets, e.g. Europeana.
Working alongside NA2, NH institutions will be enabled to make their DNA barcodes available via EBI (www.ebi.ac.uk/). In addition, DNA, RNA and proteomes will be made available following the best practices of ISBER.
