School MalaiseTrap Program
The Biodiversity Institute of Ontario (BIO) has teamed up with students from schools across Canada to explore the insect diversity in their schoolyards through DNA barcoding, a genetic technique for identifying organisms. Using a Malaise trap, a tent-like apparatus, each school will collect hundreds of insect specimens. The program aims to introduce students to the life of a biologist and the exciting science of DNA barcoding.
