After videoconference discussions, SCROL and EMBRC, represented by Ian Probert (CNRS, Roscoff), started a web project on Drupal called EBB TRACE.
EBB (European Marine Biological Resource Center Biobank) is a program that brings together the most important Biological Resource Centers in the Atlantic region. These BRCs offer public and private laboratories a unique choice of biological and genetic resources. Through this new website, the objective is to offer a common catalog of these resources to allow users to know the location of the biological model they are looking for, to compare the specimens and thus to be able to start an order more easily. The catalog will offer several categories of resources: animals, macroalgae, protists, prokaryotes and viruses.
