  • 16 April 2009MarBOL Workshops during Spring 2009: EuropeAlfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany

    As part of the MarBOL (DNA Barcoding of Marine Biodiversity, seehttp://www.marinebarcoding.org/) effort, three workshops will be held during Spring 2009 to identify bottlenecks and facilitate coordination among active marine barcoding centers – especially those associated with Census of Marine Life (CoML) and Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) projects.  The goal of the workshops is to accelerate progress, explore various applications of barcodes, including species identification, trophic analysis, use of microarrays, environmental sequencing, and metagenetics. The MarBOL workshops will be held at three locations on the following dates: EUROPE: Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany. Dates: April 16 – 17, 2009USA: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA, USA. Dates: April 30 – May 1, 2009 ASIA: Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. Dates: May 21 – 22, 2009At each location, there will be a one day DNA Barcoding Symposium featuring invited keynote speakers, who will provide overviews on topics of general scientific interest and practical importance for the MarBOL effort.  The Symposium will also include contributed talks by researchers from the region, and a student poster session.  The language of all three workshops is English.How to apply:  Participation at the MarBOL workshop is by invitation.  All interested researchers, staff, and students are invited to apply using the form available on the MarBOL (http://www.marinebarcoding.org/) project websites  Limited funding is available to defray partial costs of workshop attendance for some participants; requests for consideration for travel support should be indicated on the application form.Due date for applications:  Applications will be reviewed as they are received; applications received by March 6, 2009 will receive full consideration.  Questions?  Please contact: Ann BucklinProfessor and Head, Department of Marine Sciences Director, Marine Sciences and Technology Center University of Connecticut  Avery Point 1080 Shennecossett Road Groton, CT 06340 USA Tel. 860-405-9208; Fax 860-405-9153Email: ann.bucklin@uconn.edu

  • 7 November 2009Third International Barcode of Life ConferenceMexico City, Mexico

    The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) and the Instituto Biologia, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) invite you to join us in Mexico City during the week of 7-13 November 2009 for the Third International Barcode of Life Conference. DNA barcoding has come a long way since September 2007, when we met in Taipei for the Second International Barcode of Life Conference. CBOL now has 200 Member Organizations from 50 countries, and the International Barcode of Life Project (iBOL) has attracted participants from around the world. Mexico has established MexBOL, a national barcoding network, and is positioned to be a regional node for iBOL. There are now more than 600,000 DNA barcode records representing more than 58,000 species in BOLD and data are accumulating at an accelerating pace. Please join us in November to learn the latest developments and join the global barcoding initiative. The conference will be held at the headquarters of the Mexican Academy of Sciences in a new conference facility with a stunning view of Mexico City. There will be three days of pre-conference workshops, including two full-day short courses that will introduce participants to the lab protocols of DNA barcoding and the management and analysis of barcode data. The week of events will culminate in a barcoding event for the public in UNAM’s Science Museum. (see Overall Conference Agenda) Registration will be limited by the capacity of the conference venue, so please consider registering soon to ensure your place at the conference. Please continue to check this website as we add information (see Important Dates), and sign up for the conference mailing list to receive future notices. We look forward to seeing you all in Mexico City in November! http://dnabarcodes2009.org
