Largest collaboration in history of biology nears milestone

Dubbed the BioGenome Project, researchers on every continent except Antarctica banded together in late 2018 to sequence the genomes of all 1.8 million known species of plants, animals, fungi and other eukaryotic life on Earth within a ten-year timeframe.

Florida Museum distinguished professors Pamela and Douglas Soltis have been collaborators on the project since its inception and recently co-authored several articles in a special issue of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
