GLOBAL ANT PROJECT

Some of the most ingenious designs of nature are also some of the smallest

 

 

 

A community of ant researchers met at the Harvard University Center for the Environment in May 2008, to discuss the potential to create a DNA barcode library for all ant species – the All Ant Barcode Initiative (AABI). The meeting coincided with the inaugural meeting of the ant portion of the emerging Encyclopedia of Life project (Global Ant Project = GAP) and the 100th anniversary of the Ant Collection at the Museum of Comparative Zoology. Funding was provided by EOL and Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL).
