Open access genomic resources for terrestrial arthropods

Posted January 9, 2018 - 11:20am

Genome sequencing initiatives like the Arthropod i5k project and other biodiversity genomics research rely on access to high quality DNA and/or tissue. Global collection initiatives such as the Smithsonian Global Genome Initiative (GGI) and its partner network, the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) aim to provide access to these resources at high-quality standards. Here, we review progress toward providing genomic resources (tissues, DNA, genomes) for terrestrial arthropods, a megadiverse animal group, and compare progress in genome sequencing to all other animals....

2018 GGI Rolling Awards Program

Posted December 18, 2017 - 3:30pm

The Global Genome Initiative (GGI) Rolling Awards Program provides funding to Smithsonian-affiliated researchers for projects that support GGI goals of expeditionary research and development of genomic biodiversity science at the SI. Requests up to $30,000 with clear budget justifications will be considered. Smaller proposals to enhance field work and/or acquire genomic collections are especially encouraged. Proposals with a DNA barcoding component may be jointly considered and/or funded by the SI Barcode Network.
