AbstractThe Oklahoma Collection of Genomic Resources (OCGR) at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History (SNOMNH) was established in 2006. The collection is a repository (archive) of biological tissue samples. The collection currently holds over 29,000 aliquots of tissue from approximately 600 species of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, with particular strength in mammals from Argentina and Oklahoma, and amphibians and reptiles from the Great Plains. The searchable database is now available, or via the portals GBIF, NBII, Ornis and HerpNet.
