2017-11-20 — 2017-11-24, Skukuza/Kruger National Park
The African Centre for DNA Barcoding (ACDB), The International Barcode of Life Project (iBOL), The Department of Environmental affairs (DEA) and the University of Johannesburg (UJ) is proud to announce and welcome delegates to our hosting of the 7th International Barcode of Life (iBOL) Conference, 20 – 24 November 2017. This is the first time that this event will be held on the African continent. The venue for the hosting of this prestigious event will be the Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre, Skukuza, located within the heart of African wildlife, the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Our intention is to make this a global conference with a distinctive African flavour, using the event to highlight, support and encourage African researchers across the continent and to link them up with the global barcoding network. The conference format will include plenary lectures, parallel sessions comprising invited and contributed/selected talks as well as poster presentations. The optional first day (20 November) will be devoted to training workshops. The major theme of the conference is exploring mega-diverse biotas with DNA barcodes. A series of presentations and workshops will focus on the use of DNA to understand diversity patterns and ecological processes in species-rich and complicated ecosystems. The conference also provides a general forum for presentations, posters and discussion on the wider field of DNA barcoding. ... [Information of the supplier]
