Paper Abstract

The living organisms – animals, plants, algae, fungi – contain miсroscopic inorganic inclusions (biominerals). A rather large body of information about their chemical composition, morphological types and presence in various parts of the organisms has been accumulated. Research in biominerals has a fundamental scientific value and can also be useful for development of materials with specific properties. We propose a database intended to comprise data about all known biominerals as an efficient practical tool for both fundamental biological research and development of biotechnology.
