Bio-Rad Teams with CMB on DNA Barcode Educational Materials

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bio-Rad Laboratories and Coastal Marine Biolabs today said that they will partner on developing DNA barcoding instructional activities for classrooms.

The firms said that the collaboration will combine Bio-Rad's expertise in developing instructional tools that are offered through its Biotechnology Explorer program with CMB's expertise in engaging students in the generation and submission of real DNA barcode data to the International Barcode of Life Project.

The aim of the collaboration is to equip educators with tools that will "promote bioliteracy and increase their students' interest in scientific discovery."

Ventura, Calif.-based CMB is a private educational organization that focuses on science education initiatives.
