Russia to Create the First Bank of All Life Forms in the World

The first biomaterial bank of all living organisms on the Earth will be created by the Moscow State University, according to MSU president, Viktor Sadovnichy.

At the first stage, the project has received 1 billion roubles ($18,799,000) from the Russian Scientific Fund. The depository for the biomaterials storage is expected to be built on the University’s territory, in the “Vorobyevy Gory” valley.

“We have received the biggest scientific grant in Russia’s modern history. I personally call this project “Noah’s Ark”. We plan to build a special depository – a “data bank” with the information about all life forms on the Earth, including vanished and vanishing species. We’ve set a task to do such thing,” Sadovnichy said.
