The Scientific Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the 6th International Barcode of Life Conference will be held from August 18 – 21, 2015 at the University of Guelph, one of Canada’s major life science universities.
Since 2003, DNA barcoding has become the largest research program in biodiversity science, one examining all eukaryote kingdoms and spanning many nations. Reflecting the scope of the program, numerous major international collaborative projects are underway.
The 6th Conference will sustain traditions established by the five earlier conferences; it will showcase the latest scientific achievements and socio-economic implications of work conducted by the DNA barcode research community.
The theme of the 6th Conference, Barcodes to Biomes, signals the ongoing expansion of our community’s research agenda from studies on particular sets of species in particular places to work which is creating the capability to examine entire biotic assembles at local and global scales.
All information on the event can be found on the conference website.
