Current Project(s)
Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP) DNA Barcoding Projects

Marine Benthic Invertebrates Barcoding Project.
The goal of this barcoding project is to accurately identify marine benthic invertebrate species for use in multi-species assessments of environmental condition.

Fish Barcoding Project. With this project we will incorporate barcoding into quality assurance practices used for identifying marine fish collected in trawl monitoring programs. DNA barcoding for verification of specimens to species will be implemented as a check of onboard taxonomic identifications for a subsample of the collected fish. This program will then also be used to aid in the identification of specimens that are difficult to identify fully onboard sampling trips. Tissue samples of these fishes will be DNA barcoded and compared to the DNA barcode reference library, in addition to collecting digital images of the fish.

Freshwater Stream Invertebrates and Periphyton. An additional direction we will pursue is using barcoding to identify freshwater invertebrate species and diatoms in periphyton for use in environmental indices.

These projects are partnerships between SCCWRP, Member Agencies (the municipal wastewater dischargers in southern California), US EPA Molecular Ecology Branch, and Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding.

Great question. I thought there was, but in a brief review of features I don't see how to do it. I'll take a look into it and get back to you if I turn anything up.

Thanks for your question. Here's the answer: To sort discussions, choose "Discussions" in the View dropdown on the Forum page. A new dropdown will appear beside it that will allow you to choose to sort by "Latest Activity" or "Newest Discussions".

I hope that helps.

Hello and welcome Peter!

Thank you for taking the time to join. As host, I am contacting you to suggest a few things that you can do to take advantage of our online community.

Simple Things You Can Do

After completing your online profile you should add yourself to the member map – this adds a geographic location to each community member.
A great next step is to invite your colleagues and search our members for people you know and invite them to be your colleague on the network.
Another thing to do is to browse our Forum and ask a question or leave a comment.
Please join a Group or start your own, as groups are a great way to express your special interest, be it a taxonomic group, a regional or organizational affiliation.
Have a question? Ask one of our hosts or post it to our FAQ page.

Some Advanced Things You Can Do

If you have something to say, start a Blog. Simply choose “Add a Blog Post” under Blogs. Blogging has never been easier.
If you already have a blog or another online resource, you can share it either on your profile page or through our rss pages. Just ask me how.
Manage a Group! Create a group and invite colleagues to join the network and your group. Use the “Send Message to Group” feature to email everyone in your group, start discussion threads specific to your group’s interests, add widgets and more.

For assistance with any of the things please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Again, thank you for joining our growing online community for barcoders. I look forward to connecting with you soon.

-Matthew Fisher
