What do we do?

Taxon-omics researchers combine “taxonomy,” the process of discovering and naming new species, with exciting 21st century “-omics’”methodologies, like genomics and transcriptomics. See an overview of the project below.


Many of the 27 Taxon-omics projects are working on different taxa (groups of organisms), but many project members are collaborating with each other and applying their methods to multiple groups simultaneously. See the collaborations between project members working on different taxa below.


Taxon-omics researchers are employing new methodologies to bring taxonomy into the 21st century. See examples of the methods used below.
