This page lists the community sample collection procedures (methods and protocols) that are supported by the BioData System. BioData uses the National Environment Methods Index (NEMI) as a repository for collection procedure documentation.

For an in-depth listing of methods by community, use the following links:

All community and physical sample data in the BioData Input System must be associated with a sampling method reference which describes the field methods used to collect the sample. These references must be added to BioData before samples are entered.
