Over the next 5 years, they are hoping to process 5 million specimens and they need your help! Students and youth from around the world, along with local scientists at colleges and universities, will participate in a collaborative social networking educational game in a race to identify and assign unique DNA barcodes to as many species as possible.<br /> <br /> Partners:<br /> <br /> International Barcode of Life Project Biodiversity Institute of Ontario<br /> University of Guelph<br /> Spongelab Interactive<br /> Bioscience Education Canada<br /> Encyclopedia of Life<br /> Consortium for the Barcode of Life<br /> J.

Shyre. He's disappeared, and he's left you clues. He has a plan!<br /> <br /> In the History of Biology game, you, the assistant, are required to navigate through a labyrinth of clues, objects, and internet sites trying to figure out why Dr. Shyre has disappeared. What secret project was he working on? Who might be after him and are they after you too? Hidden amongst the history of biology, Dr. Shyre has left clues and puzzles to unlock the secrets of his most important and controversial research ever.<br /> <br /> History of Biology is an interactive, online science scavenger hunt where students experience the history of biology, through the people and the impact their discoveries had on, and continues to have on, our culture, society, politics, economics, and ethics. Starting in the 17th Century, with the invention of microscopes and the first descriptions of microscopic life, users complete weekly missions and solve puzzles by researching the lives and scientific discoveries of over 20 scientists. Users progress through a rich story-line driven game that parallels the scientific timeline of discovery. The game content takes users through the cell theory, microscopes, classification, evolution, mechanisms of heredity, the central dogma of genetics, the genomics revolution and where biological science is heading in the near future.<br /> <br /> As part of Spongelab Biology, History of Biology is one of several educational games produced by Spongelab Interactive. Subscribers of Spongelab Biology have full online access to the History of Biology Game, the internationally recognized and award-winning Genomics Digital Lab (GDL), and the Bio-musical Sensation Transcription Hero.
