Posting has been light these days as there is a lot going on at the institute and because I am teaching the online DNA Barcoding Introduction course. This course is one for the record books with 44 participants from 30 nations:
Such a large international group is a great resource for information and interesting stories especially when it spreads across almost all continents. The course has a number of interactive elements such as discussion forums one of which started this week. Participants get to exchange ideas and experiences. It is great to see how wide DNA Barcoding has spread within the last 11 years and very helpful to see how it is perceived and used in other parts of the world.
We are currently setting up another offering for June/July. If you are interested or know somebody who could benefit from participating please stay tuned for the official announcement which will hopefully come out next week.
