“Barcoding of organisms of policy concern” is the theme of the third European Congress for the Barcode of Life, to be hosted by the European Consortium for the Barcode of Life (ECBOL), the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (RBINS) and the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) in Brussels September 17-21.
The congress will take place at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and the Arts located in the historic center of Brussels.
The congress is being organized by the Joint Experimental Molecular Unit (JEMU), the shared DNA barcoding research team of RBINS and RMCA, funded by the Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO).
Financial support is being provided by BELSPO, through JEMU, and the Fund for Scientific Research – Flanders (FWO), through the “Belgian Network for DNA barcoding”, a collaborative network of 21 Belgian research groups and laboratories that are involved in DNA barcoding activities, and are also ECBOL and CBOL members.
The congress is inviting contributions in the field of DNA barcoding for its papers session, plenary and poster session.
