We had a chat with our very first guest, Aoife Leonard, who told us about her ambitious project called Earth Hologenome Initiative.
She is busy managing the project and preparing very cool sampling kits to send out to collaborators collecting samples around the globe.
The idea is to collect samples in the field, all over the world, from animals and their microbes, and send the kit back for sample processing and genomic data generation.
Then, these data can be used in a very powerful way together with any other data collaborators might be collecting, from ecology to behaviour, adaptations, and evolution.
