Student Mentorship Program!
We are pleased to offer the Urban Barcode Research Program (UBRP), an initiative to engage high school students to study biodiversity in NYC supported by the Pinkerton Foundation. Students participate in workshops and conduct independent research projects with Scientist Mentors using DNA barcoding.
The first year of the Urban Barcode Research Program (UBRP) came to a close on April 29th, 2014 when 20 student teams presented their research on DNA barcoding. Watch the UBRP Symposium talks.
We are recruiting students and mentors for the UBRP 2014–2015 academic year. Interested students can register now for mandatory workshops, and interested mentors can contact Antonia Florio for more information.

The last UBP Teacher Training Workshop for the 2014–15 UBP competition will be offered on October 18, 2014.
