Barcodes Of Life

A Project to Image-Barcode all of the World's known Species

An open proposal (Feb. 2005) to the Museum of Natural History, London, The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C., etc. and so on as further image and data sources for the barcoding of all the world's life forms in image and numeric forms using Dion Laurent's barcode image software. This project is an extension of "The Golden Age of Barcodes" and "The Barcode Series", "Made In (Flags) and "Sex Sells", "One Billion Dollars", etc., in consideration of The Barcodes of Life Initiative and the International Conference for the Barcoding of Life.  This is an open call for assistance to procure images of all the world's specimens to visually barcode their forms in conjunction with and to coincide with the scientific communities' desire to profile species DNA data with barcodes.  This project is to profile such scientific data in an identifiable barcode image form with relevant barcode number identification and color codes as for each identifiable specimen.

This is an on-going project
