Major funding boost for International Barcode of Life project
Date:4/23/2010

The International Barcode of Life (iBOL) Secretariat today announced major new funding for the world's largest biodiversity genomics project. Paul Hebert, iBOL Scientific Director, said that four Canadian agencies have made new commitments to iBOL totaling $35 million, raising total investments by these funders to $80 million.

Building on an earlier $5 million award, the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation today announced another $8.1 million over the next five years to allow expansion of the informatics platform for DNA barcode data.

"Ontario is proud to invest in game-changing research projects like iBOL that are being led by the greatest minds in our province," said Minister of Research and Innovation John Milloy. "Supporting this advanced work will drive the future of biodiversity and promote jobs and prosperity in Ontario."

Genome Canada's Board of Directors also gave notice on April 20 that it is extending its support for the iBOL project for another year with a second funding installment of $4.6 million. This follows the $2 million provided by Genome Canada in 2009-10 to initiate the project through its International Consortium Initiative Program.

Dr. Thomas Caskey, Chair of Genome Canada's Board of Directors, said: "Genome Canada is pleased to provide this next installment of funding for this Canadian-led project that will be of immense value not only to scientists but also in applications such as maintaining the integrity of our food supply, battling invasive alien species, and forensic sciences."

Dr. Christian Burks, President and CEO of the Ontario Genomics Institute, said: "The many international partnerships that comprise iBOL, and which are absolutely key to its success, will benefit tremendously from these funding commitments. We anticipate that the funded research and resources at the Canadian node for iBOL will be greatly leveraged by iBOL nodes in other countries that have already commit
