Araba Bioscan 22-29 October 2021

Data for the period 22-29 October 2021

See the Araba Bioscan Project page for background information on the project and methods.


This is the first week since I completed a year’s samples to send for taxonomic sorting and curation at the Centre for Biodiversity Genomics in Guelph. My focus will now be on a small number of groups of interest, while retaining the rest of the specimens for metabarcoding.
