MorphBank's New Annotation Functionality for Morphological Phylogenetics and Biological Research Collections.

Many biological disciplines draw important conclusions from images. However, many of these images cannot be published due to page constraints in journals, and thus they are not widely available. MorphBank (www.morphbank.com) is for these images what GenBank is for genetic data - an easily accessed repository with added functionality tailored to the disciplines using the resource. This workshop will introduce participants to new annotation functionality in MorphBank for phylogenetic character state annotations and the remote annotation of biological research collection specimens. Participants will be guided through the MorphBank interface, including the submission and annotation of images and the creation of access privileges for collaborations at early stages. This is a great opportunity for potential users to view and comment on the design of this emerging resource.
