  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.
