Please contact Alex Borisenko (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in becoming involved in the Mammal Barcode of Life campaign. It will help us to find out the best way to collaborate with you if the following information can be provided:
- Which geographic region(s) and/or taxonomic group(s) are you working on?
- If you would like to contribute mammal samples to the campaign, please specify the species available and numbers of individuals per species.
- How old are the samples? How were they collected, fixed, and stored?
- How is your voucher specimen collection organized and curated? Are there special internal regulations pertaining to the transfer of biological materials?
- If you have funds and access to local sequencing facilities, would you like to become a member of the campaign and inject data into the BOLD systems?
- What specific questions do you want to answer using COI barcodes?
- What are your other expectations from the collaboration?
