What We Promised To Do

Obtain DNA from 1,800+ cnidarian species from around the world

Collection/vouchering standards are BarCode compliant, documented through new module of “Hexacorallians of the World”

Cover every “family” and focus on key clades of interest

Generate 23 million bp of sequence data, from 10 or so markers

Reconstruct and test hypotheses of evolutionary relationships


Integration CMoL, CBOL, etc.

Positive Externality for Barcoding: CO1 sequences, BOLD?

Will ID and sequence CO1 (and 16S) from any medusozoan species and disparate anthozoans (95% eth, but medusae need second/portion in 4% buff. Formalin), but. . . .

Validation: CO1 and taxonomic identifications, genetic IDs

Will provide multiples to those interested in assessing CO1 variation

Will work on species-level marker(s) for Anthozoa

I will barcode and try to ID any

glass sponges (Hexactinellida)
