University of Guelph Grant

Organization - University of Guelph
Grant Amount - $250,000
Foundation - Moore Foundation
Grant Purpose - This grant to the University of Guelph will be used to develop a new approach to DNA barcoding that will radically advance its utility as a tool for large-scale biodiversity analysis.

Applied to bulk samples of organisms these barcodes will define the pool of species represented in the sampled environment.
