Established in 2006, the Florida Museum’s Genetic Resources Repository (GRR) archives more than 60,000 tissue samples and DNA and RNA preparations from physical specimens in the Museum.

Through its ongoing research and conservation projects, the Museum estimates it will add more than 100,000 specimens to the collection in the next 15 to 20 years.
