CMarZ Barcoding Association

About the Association

CMarZ and several other CoML field projects are actively engaged in DNA barcoding. Currently, there are active CMarZ barcoding centers in the USA, Japan, Germany, China, and India. A number of CoML laboratories are actively barcoding marine animals, including those represented in the holozooplankton.  New marine barcoding activities have been initiated with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation through the recent project, DNA Barcoding of Marine Biodiversity (MarBOL, see
