An international partnership has been established to create a zooplankton genomic (ZooGeneTM) database of DNA type sequences for calanoid copepods and euphausiids. The ZooGeneTM partnership includes four lead investigators and thirteen expert taxonomic consultants from seven countries.

Objectives of the ZooGene Partnership

Funded by the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the National Ocean Partnership Program,
the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the Census of Marine Life
