1 TreeBOL Africa Michelle van der Bank, Olivier Maurin, Adeniyi Jayeola

2 Objectives of TreeBOL To advance plant DNA barcoding To learn and teach about plant DNA barcoding To provide leadership in the arena of plant DNA barcoding To help fulfill the goal of having organisms barcoded To complete a database of DNA barcodes for the world’s species of trees

4 African side of Tree-BOL, plans and goals: A kick-off workshop (October 2008) –identify the key species/species groups to be targeted –Identification of the need of collaborators –Setting up target Website (www.uj.ac.za/botany select tree-BOL Africa)www.uj.ac.za/botany Compiling a list of southern Africa trees (September 2008) Compiling a checklist of African trees (January 2009) Setting up collaboration (SAf & all Africa) Collection/Barcoding of the estimated trees native to southern Africa (November 2009) Collection/Barcoding of the estimated trees occurring in the CTFS–PLOTS in Africa (January 2010). Collection/Barcoding of 10-15% of African trees (March 2010)

5 University of Johannesburg Workshop 9-10 of October 2008

7 The workshop Plant Barcoding & Tree-BOL introduction Each invited speaker presented its flora, target group of interest. Setting up the need of each country, institution How UJ could provide help and support to the projects collaborators

8 Workshop output Setting up regional groups (southern, eastern, western Africa). BOLD structure Traded trees, Medicinal plants, taxonomical groups, region potentially rich Fund application in each country/group Kick-off with support from UJ ( silica gel, taq, training) Feedback after 6 months from each institution, groups, and countries

9 Our plans after the first workshop Annual workshop, Barcoding training week Grant writing training (NRF, RS), proposal sharing to help with grant applications Student training at UJ through specific projects Advice through website on barcoding (plant collection, extraction, sequencing, submission to BOLD) Advice on setting up DNA banking Information sharing (protocols)

10 DNA barcoding of plant Need to be setup with Guelph, BOLD –Seqeuencing and BOLD setup No standard protocols available for plant since barcode just agreed on. Ongoing test between Guelph and UJ on Trees and Shrubs of the Kruger National Park Participating institutions might not need sequencing facility, since all barcoding process could be perform at Guelph)

11 The project so far: Report to New York after 6 months: –Webpage setup (to improve and update) –Grant proposal UJ, application to setup a center of excellence devoted to barcoding –Workshop and collaboration setup –Material ready to be barcoded (800 species) –Grant proposal workshop in planning –Molecular technical training (association with FishBOL) in planning
