EBP Organizational Model

The schematic shows the main features of the proposed organizational model for the EBP as a global network of communities. The outer ring shows a global network of interacting nodes involved in DNA sequencing and informatics. The geographical locations are representative and are not intended to be completely inclusive of all participating countries or political entities. The communities in the inner ring are also representative and are not intended to be inclusive of all taxon-related communities and organizations that are supporting the goals of the EBP. The EBP Coordinating Council will have representation from all participating nodes, communities, and organizations as well as representation from the public and private sectors.
