CABRI
Common Access to Biological Resources and Information

Our Mission

To provide biological products of quality to the scientific community:
by searching the catalogues of the participating collections by means of:
    + the CABRI Simple search engine, that provides a special search by synonyms feature,
    + the adapted SRS interface;
by browsing the hypertext, including predefined full indexes by catalogues, genus/species and families.
To provide quality guidelines to ensure our customers the specific technical procedures used.
To expand the resources with other centres having acceptable quality standards.
