Our Plans

iBOL is working to establish an earth observation system that will reveal species, including their dynamics and interactions.

Tracking ecosystems and revealing symbiomes – distinct fungal, plant, and animal species associated with host organisms – before the middle of this century by completing three research program:

 

BARCODE 500K

BIOSCAN

PLANETARY BIODIVERSITY MISSION

BIOSCAN

The 2nd iBOL PROGRAM

2019 – 2027 

BIOSCAN will allow us to forecast changes in biodiversity in response to anthropogenic drivers as well as deepen our understanding of species interactions by probing the symbiome, that is, the array of mitochondrial sequences recovered from a specimen indicative of the species associated with it.
