QBOL has put a lot of effort into obtaining the relevant species for the project. Some species were easier to obtain than others and more specimens of the species are still needed to investigate the intraspecies variation.
Therefore a list of Urgently Wanted Specimen has been compiled and has been distributed to relevant people.

The actual lists need filling up. More isolates are needed to boost the number of strains and species in the databases. Do you have material that is not yet mentioned in these Q-lists? Please contact one the QBOL taxon coordinators.
