Fieldwork for the 21st Century: How to Grow your Garden's Impact for Research Through Herbarium and Genomic Biorepository Vouchers

This workshop will guide participants through the collection and vouchering process associated with Global Genome Initiative-Gardens partnership. Participants will learn the basics of voucher preparation from a living collection including: 1) how to identify collections that align with research and conservation priorities through gap analysis tools; 2) how to document and record metadata from a collection and make that data available to the research community; and 3) how to collect material from plants in the collection for deposit in an herbarium and genomic biorepository. The workshop will begin with interactive presentations; followed by a virtual tour through facilities at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, Fort Worth Botanic Garden, and Denver Botanic Garden herbarium. These tours will highlight the herbarium, biorepository, molecular laboratory, and living collection-with an emphasis on the Nationally Accredited Begonia CollectionTM. Participants will make a voucher-either real or virtual-and be walked through the process of making that collection part of a documented database and accessible to the research community.

Formal guidelines with what apps you may need to download and supplies and materials needed to make a collection will be provided to attendees once registered.
