What is the Catalan initiative for the Earth Biogenome Project (CBP)?

It is a project that aims to generate aims to generate a detailed catalogue of the genome of the eukaryotic species of the Catalan Countries.

Frenetic human activity is altering the conditions that sustain life on Earth so significantly that biodiversity is diminishing. By increasing our knowledge about the species living on Earth, we will be able to manage resources in a more responsible fashion.

Technology

The potent technological infrastructures for genomic sequencing that exist in Catalonia place the latter in a unique position to develop this project.

Inspiration

The project draws its inspiration from the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), a global initiative for the sequencing, cataloguing and characterisation of all the species that inhabit the Earth.

The Catalan initiative for the Earth Biogenome Project (CBP) is an initiative of:
