Field work in the Canadian Arctic for BIOSCAN-Canada

Project Details

BIOSCAN-Canada is a new multi-institutional initiative that will vastly enhance our ability to understand and conserve biodiversity. First, BIOSCAN-Canada researchers will optimize DNA-based biosurveillance protocols for global use. Second, BIOSCAN-Canada activities will harness the power of the latest high-throughput sequencing technologies to rapidly illuminate biodiversity across six of Canada’s ecozones. Third, BIOSCAN-Canada will integrate the perspectives of local Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, providing a global model for how to increase the impact of biodiversity knowledge.
