Getting Started

There are two ways to join Morphobank: through invitation or signing up. To sign up fill out the registration form with your contact information and a brief description of your project. After a brief review, a MorphoBank administrator will contact you with access information. Invitations to join MorphoBank can also be given out by current MorphoBank members who are the "administrators" or creators of a particular Project and who wish to invite collaborators. Once a new person has joined, he or she is free to create new, separate projects.

We welcome and encourage students to join MorphoBank and use the software. It is the policy of MorphoBank, however, to request that the student's advisor be made a member of any student project.
