FREDIE is steadily including new partners who are interested to link their collection to the FREDIE network

Just contact Jörg Freyhof ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or Matthias Geiger ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) with any questions.

You will:

  • Improve the visibility of your collections and by this increase the chance to be included in future collaborative projects on all levels (European, Global).
  • Improve the chance to find partners for future collaborative studies and publications.
  • Receive a code, where the DNA and rest of the tissue you provided is professionally stored.
  • Have the full right to use the CO1 sequences of your materials in your publications without adding any FREDIE partner as a co-author. (FREDIE should be acknowledged in publications.)

 

You need to have:

  • A publically open collection of tissues linked to vouchers of freshwater fishes, molluscs or mayflies.
  • Photographs of the vouchers.


All property rights for the use of the DNA and tissues you provided are guaranteed . No additional analysis will be performed without your approval.  No DNA or tissues will be given to third parties without your approval.

We will:

  • Extract the DNA from the tissues you sent.
  • Sequence the 5' „barcoding“ region of the mitochondrial COI gene.
  • Professionally store the tissue and the DNA or send it back to you.
  • Link your voucher database to the FREDIE network and from there to other global networks and/or professionally store the vouchers you provided.
