ICDB project progress

The Insect Color database is being actively developed. We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments.

Planned features

How to use, example workflows, protocols

As the tool structure becomes solidified, we will be adding a page that contains explanatory material, definitions of metadata, example workflows, and protocols and suggestions for data acquisition.

More species, more families, more orders

Our starting data set is very beetle-heavy and we plan to diversify. What insects would you like to see on ICDB?

Data submission

We also plan to open up ICDB for data submission from scientists around the world.
