  • 14 March 2007ABBI-FISHBOL Meeting in Buenos Aires, ArgentinaBuenos Aires, Argentina

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) supported the first meeting of the Neotropical working groups for the two main global barcoding projects, the All Birds Barcoding Initiative (ABBI) and the Fish Barcode of Life Initiative (FISH-BOL). The meeting was held at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales in Buenos Aires from 14-16 March 2007 and was co-sponsored by MACN, CONICET, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the Census of Marine Life South America. During the meeting, the advances of each groups’ projects were presented, and the regional strategies for both initiatives were planned and discussed. Participants included researchers from the Neotropics and from other regions of the world with a strong interest and active involvement in the Neotropical birds and fishes.

  • 19 March 2007Third Regional Barcoding Meeting in Campinas, BrazilCampinas, Brazil

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) held a regional meeting in Campinas, Brazil from 19-21 March 2007 to discuss the potential uses of “DNA barcoding” in the several areas related to Biodiversity in the Neo-tropical region. The meeting was co-sponsored by BioNET INTERNATIONAL, the Brazilian Ministry for Science and Technology (MCT/PPBio), the Brazilian Society for Progress of Science (SBPC), and the Inter-American Biodiversity Information Network (IABIN). This meeting provided a unique opportunity to survey the DNA technology capacities of South American countries, and helped to determine the different needs and bottlenecks faced by each of the participant institutions. The experiences of each institution were shared through open discussions and helped to strengthen the South-South collaborative initiatives in DNA sequencing, biological collections, and database management.  Agenda and presentations

  • 10 May 2007Canadian Barcode of Life Science SymposiumUniversity of Guelph, Guelph, Canada

    The Canadian Barcode of Life Science Symposium took place May 10-11, 2007 at the University of Guelph. The symposium followed the Opening of the Biodiversity Institute, the home of the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding and headquarters of the Canadian Barcode of Life Network.  The conference showcased talks and posters from all Network participants on their current results in an open scientific Symposium.   There were 120 registered participants, 50 posters, and best student posters were awarded to Gregg Robideau, Elizabeth Clare, Muhammad Setiadi, and Hana Kucera.

  • 13 May 2007All-Fungi Barcode Initiative WorkshopConservation Research Center, Front Royal, VA, USA

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) along with the USDA and Rutgers will convene the All-Fungi Barcode initiative workshop at the Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal, Virginia on 13-15 May, 2007. The workshop is designed to bring together approximately 40 researchers from around the world to facilitate discussion on identifying universally applicable barcode gene regions and to plan a barcode initiative devoted to fungi. The workshop is being supported by a grant to Rutgers University by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Agendas and presentations. View pictures from the meeting.

  • 8 June 2007CITES Convention of the Parties Side Event

    "DNA Barcoding" is a technique that uses genetic material from microgram samples to identify species of origin. It can identify parts of organisms and processed products such as bushmeat. The Consortium for the Barcode of Life is promoting tests of barcoding by parties to CITES, IGOs and NGOs.
