Pacific Center for Molecular Biodiversity (PCMB)

Discovery through DNA

The Pacific Center for Molecular Biodiversity (PCMB) is expanding the knowledge and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Hawai‘i and the Pacific region through molecular research. The laboratory is an integral component of the Bishop Museum Natural Sciences biological collections, housing genetic material at ultra-cold temperatures for long term preservation. Research findings are disseminated through publication of scholarly reports, peer-reviewed journal articles and professional presentations.

PCMB staff collaborate with scientific, educational, and cultural partners and programs.

The use of the facilities at the PCMB by researchers and students is encouraged. If you are interested in the activities of the PCMB, please contact the laboratory manager for more information.
