Illuminate

Biodiversity

To save our living planet

iBOL’s mission

illuminate biodiversity by developing globally accessible, dna-based systems for the discovery and identification of all multicellular life

Discover how the ability to

read biodiversity will impact you

Explore the simple way that

we can read life on our planet

Imagine a world with biodiversity

identification at your fingertips

Our Plans

iBOL will 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 – 2026 

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.
