Evolution@UF goes live!

Evolution@UF is an academic community of faculty, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students, and visiting scientists engaged in evolutionary biology at the University of Florida. The primary goal for Evolution@UF is to push the frontier of evolutionary biology through innovation, collaborative research, and education across departments at UF. We have launched our new website.

A sequence, a specimen and an identifier walk into a bar…

We are not giving up our discussion on how to implement Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs)! This discussion is way too important! BiSciCol knows all about identifiers. We will also make some noise at the upcoming TDWG meeting in Florence.
