About DIPnet

Founded in 2012 the Diversity of the Indo-Pacific Network (DIPnet) was created to advance biodiversity research in the Indo-Pacific. Our primary aims are to promote collaboration, build capacity, and advocate for best practices in conducting biodiversity research in the Indo-Pacific. Our first project was to aggregate genetic data from the mitochondrial genomes of marine species of the Indo-Pacific into an free and openly accessible searchable database, which eventually became the first use case and first entry into the Genomics Observatories Metadatabase (GeOME). Going forward, we are looking for ways to promote collaboration an dialogue between the diverse peoples, governments and researchers in the Indo-Pacific.
