It's something researchers have been waiting 11 years for.

The Canadian Museum of Nature revealed the National Biodiversity Cryobank of Canada, Tuesday.

The facility, located at the Canadian Museum of Nature's research and collections facility in Gatineau, is the first of its kind in Canada with a national mandate.

It will house hundreds of thousands of tissue and DNA samples, documenting the flora and fauna of the country, allowing researchers to answer questions about a variety species.
