Scientists create a genomic “Noah’s Ark”

Data will be collected and published in a database called “Genomic Noah’s Ark”.

Scientists create an international project called “Genomes of Vertebrates”. They collect the genomes of all vertebrate species living on the planet (66 thousand species).

The author of the project was Oliver Ryder. According to the Genome 10K consortium members, the data will be collected and published in the public domain in the “Genomic Noah’s Ark” database.

The goal is to create a common systematic basis for biologists who will be able to identify the reasons for the extinction of certain species.

A total of 150 scientists from 12 countries will be involved in the work.
