Linking DNA barcoding and genome sequencing

How BGE Works

Fourteen work packages across three streams and five pillars: how all the parts of BGE fit together.

BGE is organised around two main streams of work: one focusing on DNA barcoding (coordinated by iBOL Europe), the other on genome sequencing (coordinated by ERGA). Both streams converge in a third ‘joint stream’ designed to connect expertise from both communities in combined actions to capitalise on the benefits of working together.

How BGE Works

All streams follow the same structure – a sequential chain of five areas of work (known as ‘pillars’): node development, sampling, sequencing, data, and application. 

How BGE Works

Cross-cutting programs to coordinate, communicate and manage policy and ethics complement the scientific work taking place in the streams.
