Summary:  The Collections in Support of Biological Research (CSBR) Program provides funds: 1) for improvements to secureand organize collections that are significant to the NSF BIO-funded research community; 2) to secure collections-related data for sustained, accurate, and efficient accessibility to the biological research community; and 3) totransfer ownership of collections.

 

The CSBR program provides for enhancements that secure and improve existing collections, improves theaccessibility of digitized specimen-related data, and develop better methods for specimen curation and collectionmanagement. Requests should demonstrate a clear and urgent need to secure the collection, and the proposedactivities should address that need. Biological collections supported include established living stock/culturecollections, vouchered non-living natural history collections, and jointly-curated ancillary collections such aspreserved tissues and DNA libraries.
