Have you submitted and received approval for your teams' proposals? Teams with accepted proposals can attend in-person and virtual Open Labs with their mentors. Each team must enter collection data on the Barcode Sample Database at least one day prior to their first Open Lab. Teams who fail to enter their data cannot attend Open Labs.
Teams must sign up at least one week in advance of Open Lab dates. Mentors must be present with their students at all times.
Virtual bioinformatics Open Labs will be hosted via Zoom; mentors will receive an email with the Zoom link a few days in advance of the Open Lab.
Note that you must be logged in to your DNA Barcoding Project Portal account to register for Open Labs.
