The Darwin Tree of Life Project sets out to sequence all of the eukaryotic species found in Britain and Ireland. With over 1000 genomes produced, the Marine Biological Association (MBA) is a key partner for the project, playing a major role in the sampling and provision of marine species.

Join Patrick and Rebekka from the MBA project team who have visited over 40 locations across the UK to find as many marine species as possible.  Discover how once the samples are collected and processed in the laboratory, they are sent to the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the Natural History Museum for genome sequencing. You will also get a chance to find out how you can use the data collected in the project for your own work or interest.
