The Paul Hebert Centre for DNA Barcoding and Biodiversity Studies (PHCDBS) is set to become India’s central hub for DNA barcoding.
Researchers have found that by using advanced DNA technologies they can get a detailed snapshot of insect diversity within a bird’s nest showing everything from the bird’s last meal to disease-causing parasites.
Canada’s Centre for Biodiversity Genomics hosts 10th meeting of iBOL’s Science Committee, Aug. 8-11.
Prof. Paul Hebert’s scientific publications surpassed 100K citations on Google Scholar this week, signalling DNA barcoding’s profound impact on biodiversity science internationally. 100K Citations and Growing: How Prof. Paul Hebert’s DNA Barcoding Research is Transforming Biodiversity Science Worldwide.
The 2022 expansion of Arctic BIOSCAN’s biodiversity monitoring activities was made possible by support from Polar Knowledge Canada and the SOI Foundation, which together enabled the hiring of field technicians in four communities across Nunavut. These Nunavummiut youth have brought new energy and local knowledge, and it has been exciting to have them on board this field season!
The iBOL Consortium presented its BIOSCAN: Illuminating Biodiversity webinar series on June 30th with Dr. Florian Leese discussing the work of the Aquatic Ecosystem Research Group at the Universität Duisburg-Essen, studying the impacts of multiple stressors on freshwater biodiversity with metabarcoding.
From Peruvian and Brazilian coastal wetlands, Mexican lagoons, and the Great Lakes in America to Sundaland and China, and many other places around the Pacific, a new special issue, “Aquatic Organisms Research with DNA Barcodes,” published by Diversity, features scientific papers exploring new insights about life under the water through DNA technologies.
