Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL) is a nonprofit, marine research center and genome bank dedicated to exploring and preserving the threatened biological diversity of the sea.
HOW THE OGL BIOREPOSITORY WORKS
Specimens are collected and identified by scientists from academia, government, aquariums, and nonprofits around the world.
OGL scientists extract and preserve tissue and DNA at our lab located on the Northeastern University Marine Science Center campus..
Samples are archived for long-term storage at OGL’s cryopreservation facility.
OGL DNA Barcoding Service
In addition to archiving and distributing DNA and tissue samples, OGL offers DNA barcoding services upon request for a fee.
