On 26 September 2018, Paul Hebert, Professor of Molecular Biodiversity, University of Guelph (Canada), will hold the public lecture associated with the Dr. AH. Heineken Prize for the Environmental Sciences 2018.
Paul Hebert will receive this prestigious award on 27 September, during a special meeting of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), for his major contribution to the development of DNA Barcoding, a method of species identification and discovery using a short section of DNA from a standardized section of the genome.
DNA Barcoding forms the basis of a spin-off that Naturalis Biodiversity Center has founded, along with Institute of Environmental Sciences, Leiden University, KWR Watercycle Research Institute and Baseclear. This spin-off company will be officially launched after the public lecture.
