Notice in Use: Bilberry genome assembly

The bilberry is a widespread shrub that grows in northern Europe and has been a significant source of nutrition for the Sámi. The samples used to assemble the genome were collected in Sápmi, home of the Sámi, in northern Europe. 

The international team of researchers placed a BC Notice on the genome hosted in the Genome Database for Vaccinium (GDV) and within a Molecular Ecology Resources publication to acknowledge the Indigenous provenance and rights associated with the bilberry and this research.
