AbstractThe Pacific Center for Molecular Biodiversity (PCMB) is expanding the knowledge and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Hawai‘i and the Pacific region through molecular research. The laboratory is an integral component of the Bishop Museum Natural Sciences biological collections, housing genetic material (extracted DNA and tissues) of biota (more than 12,000 specimens) from vouchers collected in the Hawaiian Islands and throughout the Pacific at ultra-cold temperatures for long term preservation.
