The Institute of Plant Physiology and Genetics, BAS has become a representative node for Bulgaria of the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) Consortium and its European hub BIOSCAN Europe
The Institute of Plant Physiology and Genetics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is the new node for Bulgaria of the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) Consortium with Dr. Georgi Bonchev as a representative member in the Science Committee of iBOL. The affiliation of IPPG to the Consortium is an outcome of the activities within the frame of the BULCode project (www.plantbulcode.com) aimed at the promotion of biodiversity studies in Bulgaria through DNA barcoding technologies and the creation of collaboration networks worldwide.
Established in 2008, the International Barcode of Life consortium (https://ibol.org/) is a research alliance of more than 40 nations undertaking the largest biodiversity science initiative: explore biodiversity by developing globally accessible, DNA based systems for the discovery and identification of all multicellular life and to create and develop a digital identification system for life that is accessible to everyone.
BIOSCAN Europe (https://www.bioscaneurope.org/) is part of the International Barcode of Life Consortium (iBOL) and its global BIOSCAN initiative which aims to transform understanding of species diversity, their interactions, and dynamics. The aim is to unite and connect the national nodes of iBOL as well as the wider community of biodiversity researchers present in Europe, and to establish a European hub for the International Barcode of Life consortium.
