Dear fellow ECNers:

   The posting linked below is an attempt to advance the launch and use of the NEON Biorepository samples, also but by no means exclusively in the context of upcoming NSF proposal deadlines.

   Hopefully the posting will answer many basic questions about the NEON Biorepository (where is it?, what is there?, who to contact?, etc.), and how it is similar and different from other (insect, invertebrate) collections. If you have other questions, please e-mail me and I'll be happy to answer and add them to the posting. We are trying to lower thresholds and remove barriers to using these samples.

Cheers, Nico
