Background Marine biological resources and their creatures are one of the major parts of marine biomass. Marine biological resources are important for regular genetic research and isolation and extraction of biological materials from the marine organisms which have the potential for commercial development and employment in the coastal areas. Marine Biobank, in addition to setting up a joint venture, will co-ordinate the measurments for protection of marine biodiversity and marine biotechnological applications at universities by: a) Setting up technological tools and common practices to keep records of marine biological resources in the whole phylogenetic tree of life. B) Applying the best practices and guidelines for storing and recording information in the MBI series to ensure compliance with the regulatory framework and regulations regarding access and sharing of data on the use of marine bio resources for research, commercial and academic aims C) Developing an innovative platform for national and legal users at national level and producing a set of guidelines for the use of marine biological resources for innovative purposes. The Marine Biobank will ultimately facilitate sustainable access to the marine biodiversity, related data and extractable products for academic researchers and users in the industry. In this article, an attempt has been made to discuss the formation, importance and application of marine biobanks.
