DetailsUsing Campanula as an exemplar, the project (2012–2015) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG ) within the Scientific Library Services and Information Systems (LIS) programme and done by the BGBM in cooperation with the University of Münster (Working Group Evolution und Biodiversity of Plants) has realised a system for integrated sample data processing for organismic samples and associated data (e.g. herbarium specimens, tissue samples, images, primary data, etc.) that are handled during the systematic research process. Existing EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy components were used to store (Data Repository), edit (Taxonomic Editor) and display (this Campanula Portal as an application of the CDM Portal) the data. The storage and presentation of data is conceptionally a dynamic process in which the taxonomic backbone is constantly adapted to the current scientific knowledge based on data availability. The main goals of the project was (a) an easy integration of samples used in the research process and their metadata into collections, thereby improving sustainability and verifiability of systematic research, and (b) the optimization of the data management and thereby increasing the efficiency of the workflow in systematic research. The project contributed to the acceleration and simplification of the systematic research workflow. This data set represents an ABCD-compliant export from DNA-sample data compiled by the project.
