|frozen tissue collection, genetic resources
|The Los Angeles Natural History Museum maintains frozen tissues as part of its Herpetology, Ichthyology, and Ornithology departments. The collection includes more than 1,200 tissues from fishes (especially Gobiiformes) and approximately 3,300 avian tissue samples (usually breast, liver, and heart muscle). Tissues are stored in cryogenic tubes in freezers, and are available for subsampling for studies of DNA or other molecular work.
