Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) offers DNA barcoding and genome skimming of European species

One of the many goals in BGE is to fill gaps in the barcode reference library of European species. There is a particular focus on pollinators, freshwater, marine and other species of significance for environmental monitoring, but all multicellular organisms are relevant. A list of European animal species missing from the reference library is developed and available through the BIOSCAN Germany website. The submission of samples and metadata is very similar to what we have done through NorBOL over the last few years and all sequencing costs will be covered by the project. NTNU University Museum and the Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo are partners in the project and can assist with submission and preparation of samples.
