Basic Information

Overview

The NBII provided three main benefits to the biological resource community. First, its design as a federation of partners allowed it to assist data owners in maintaining critical assets; second, scientists, managers, and others, searching for data on a particular subject could do so from a single, Web-based source rather than having to go to the sites of numerous organizations; and third, the NBII provided users with direct access to many data resources that are deeply embedded in structured databases on the Web. This program is currently inactive.
