biodiversity identification at your fingertips
know about any animal, plant, or fungus on the spot, in an instant, anywhere on the planet
a world in which we know all the millions of species that live amongst us – any animal, plant, pest, food, or fungus.
Now imagine that everyone has access to the sum of humanity’s knowledge about those species at their fingertips – is it harmful, is it part of a healthy ecosystem, or is it endangered and in need of protection?
We believe that when everyone is able to read biodiversity, we will transform our connection to and our impact on nature for the better.
This is the BIOLITERATE world that DNA barcoding will build
our vision will support the development of portable devices that enable species identification and knowledge access for everyone
We are already enabling innovators to make portable species identification devices a reality.
