ready MycoBank

General Information
MycoBank is a database created for the mycological community (as well as scientific community more generally) to document new mycological names, combinations and associated data (such as descriptions and illustrations ). Pairwise sequence alignments and polyphasic identifications of fungi and yeasts against curated references databases are proposed. Nomenclatural experts will be available to check the validity, legitimacy and linguistic correctness of the proposed names in order to avoid nomenclatural error. Deposited names can remain confidential until after publication as required. Once public, the names are accessible through MycoBank, Index Fungorum, GBIF and other international biodiversity initiatives, where they will further be linked to other databases. MycoBank will (when applicable) provide onward links to other databases containing, for example, living cultures, DNA data, reference specimens and pleomorphic names linked to the same holomorph. Authors intending to publish nomenclatural novelties are encouraged to contribute to this new initiative.
