The BGE consortium brings together two newly-formed European networks, BIOSCAN Europe and the European Reference Genome Atlas (ERGA).
BIOSCAN Europe connects existing European national networks, scientists and projects working on DNA barcoding and metabarcoding. ERGA is a pan-European scientific community of experts in genome sequencing that aims to coordinate the generation of reference-quality genomes for all eukaryotic European species.
Through BGE, BIOSCAN Europe and ERGA become the European nodes of two worldwide organisations: the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) and the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), thus connecting the two European networks to the international community of scientists, policymakers and practitioners.
Learn more about the BGE communities at the BIOSCAN Europe and ERGA websites.
