GenBank ® is the NIH genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences. GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), and GenBank at NCBI. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis. GenBank is searchable by taxon (such as Solifugae) to see what publicly available data is available for that taxon.



MorphoBank is a data repository and collaborative tool used to produce, edit, illustrate, and annotate morphological character matrices for phylogenetic analysis. MorphoBank is project-based, meaning a team of researchers can create a project and share the images and associated data exclusively with each other. When a paper associated with the project is published, the research team can make their data permanently available for view on MorphoBank where it is then archived. Users can browse projects and sort by taxon.


International Code of Zoological Nomenclature

The International Code of Zoological Nomenclature is a system of rules and recommendations established to promote stability and universality in the application and use of scientific names of animals and to ensure that the name of each taxon is unique and distinct.  It thus preserves a common language with which we can refer to particular animal species and groups.


World Arachnida Catalog

The World Arachnida Catalog provides a compilation of the current taxonomy known for all orders of animals in the class Arachnida except spiders. This is the go-to site for exploring the taxonomy of the arachnid order Solifugae. To explore the taxonomy of spiders (order Araneae), visit the World Spider Catalog.




International Society of Arachnology (ISA)

The International Society of Arachnology (ISA) is the premier international scientific society devoted to arachnology. ISA focuses on all arachnid orders. Currently ISA has about 500 members from 70 countries. ISA's goals are to promote the study of Arachnology and communication of arachnological information among researchers via meetings and publications.


American Arachnological Society

The purpose of the American Arachnological Society (AAS) is to further the study of Arachnids, foster closer cooperation and understanding between amateur and professional arachnologists, and to publish the Journal of Arachnology. The AAS accomplishes the dissemination of information about arachnids through annual meetings, mentorship and support of the next generation of scientists, and through publications, including the Journal of Arachnology.
