NameBank Home Servers - NameBank

NameBank is a registry for all recorded taxon names.

NameBank is a biological name server. It stores and serves NameBankIDs via Life Science Identifiers, a persistent and distinct identifier. Each NameBank LSID returns a NameBank object which contains information about the NameBank record.

It stores and qualifies recorded taxon names, providing an index for all name-annotated content. NameBank serves as a foundational layer for a name-based informatics infrastructure.



The basic unit of NameBank is the NameBank record which is referenced by a unique and persistent NameBankID. NameBank records are like index cards, recording basic metadata about specific distinct name string concepts. NameBank records form reconcilation groups based on objectively derived inter-relationships.
