Librería Metagenómica del Ecuador

Create global gene library to learn about Ecuador's biodiversity
Collect and share bioinformatics.

We are a group of scientists interested in exploring the potential applications of Ecuador’s unique biodiversity. As a first step, we are working to assemble and apply gene libraries collected from around the country. You can join field trips in Ecuador to collect samples, work in a lab extracting and sequencing nucleic acids, or from home assembling and curating the electronic database.
