Urban Barcode Project: Student Projects

Description:
The Urban Barcode Project is a science competition in New York City. A DNA barcode is a DNA sequence that uniquely identifies each species of living thing. In the Urban Barcode Project, student research teams use DNA barcoding to explore biodiversity in New York City. TeaBOL is a DNA barcoding project undertaken by students at the Trinity School.
