As the cradle of human civilization, and home to many of the world’s iconic species, Africa plays a special role in global efforts to understand and conserve biodiversity.  The Africa BioGenome Project is an outstanding example of scientists coming together from across the African continent to develop critical knowledge that will be necessary for feeding its people and for protecting its biodiversity from the impacts of climate change and habitat destruction.  The Earth BioGenome project warmly welcomes the African BioGenome Project to the world-wide community of institutions, affiliated projects and engaged scientists who are committed to sequencing and annotating the genomes of all eukaryotic species.
