To illuminate biodiversity by developing globally accessible DNA-based systems to speed species discovery, probe species interactions, and establish biodiversity baselines
BIOSCAN is laying the foundation for a global biodiversity monitoring system and to explore its socio-economic implications. It will achieve its scientific goals by coupling a massive, strategic sampling campaign with technologies that have never been integrated and implemented at the scale required for planetary biosurveillance.
