  • 17 June 2007Inaugural ICI WorkshopUniversity of Guelph, Guelph, Canada

    This workshop, held at the University of Guelph from June 17-20, seeks to establish theInternational Barcode of Life Initiative (iBOL) as a formal, multi-national research enterprise. It is hoped that the research coalition will gain activation by January 2009. If so, within five years of that date, iBOL's work will have created a barcode reference library with 5M specimen records from 500K species. It will, as well, have simplified the protocols for barcode acquisition and analysis. Clear scientific plans, the mobilization of a broad community of researchers and the acquisition of funding will all be required to achieve iBOL's goals.Further detailed information on both the workshop and ICI in general can be found atwww.dnabacoding.org.

  • 9 July 2007Leading Labs MeetingFront Royal, VA, USA

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) convened a 2-day workshop designed to bring together lab managers and data managers involved in DNA barcoding from across the globe.  The workshop was devoted to discussions of barcoding lab protocols and data management, and to creating a global cooperative network of barcoding labs.  By creating and supporting this network of “Leading Labs,” CBOL hopes to help overcome the technical obstacles encountered by barcoding projects, increasing the flow of high-quality barcode data into the public domain.

  • 17 September 2007Second International Barcode of Life ConferenceTaipei, Taiwan

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) and Academia Sinica invite you to join us in Taipei, Taiwan during the week of 17 September 2007 for the Second International Barcode of Life Conference. It has now been more than two years since the first conference was held in London and the Barcode of Life Initiative has gained great momentum since that time. There are now more than 200,000 DNA barcode records representing about 25,000 species and data are accumulating at an accelerating pace. Please join us at Academia Sinica in September to learn the latest developments.There will also be a marine-focused side meeting on 17 September 2007 sponsored by the Fish Barcode of Life Initiative (FISH-BOL). In addition to the conference's three days of technical sessions, a number of technical meetings, workshops, and a short course will take place on the days immediately before and after the conference.

  • 3 October 2007DNA Barcoding in EuropeLeiden, The Netherlands

    EDIT, the European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy, is organizing a meeting on DNA Barcoding in Europe from 3-5 October in Leiden, the Netherlands. Researchers from EDIT and non-EDIT-organizations and stakeholders are invited to join in.The goal of the meeting is to provide a platform for European researchers working on DNA barcoding and other DNA sequence-based species identification systems to meet and exchange. To coordinate research efforts in Europe we are proposing to initiate working groups on topics of shared interest that should then carry on after the meeting. One important issue will be how to explore funding options, particularly with view to the 7thframework. Researchers who would like to take the lead in one of the aforementioned working groups or researchers looking for additional partners in proposals are very welcome to contact the organizers. We will try to accommodate your interests in the meeting.For more information about the conference click here or go to http://www.ecbol.org/index.php?/pa/ge/welcomeDownload the First Circular by clicking here.
