In the ThaiBOL Project several institutes and departments of the “Staatliche Naturwissenschaftlichen Sammlungen Bayerns” plan to generate DNA-Barcodes for the whole fauna of Thailand in close cooperation with the Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand), such as with BIO (Universität Guelph, Canada). The initial stages of this project are financially supported by the GeoBioCenter of the University Munich (LMU).
