University of New Mexico: UNM joins multi-institutional effort to create Terrestrial Parasite Tracker project

University of New Mexico: UNM joins multi-institutional effort to create Terrestrial Parasite Tracker project. “Museum specimens play a fundamental role in understanding parasite biology, yet specimens and associated data are often hidden away in vials and on microscope slides in research collections all over the country. That is set to change soon, however, as The University of New Mexico joins Purdue University and 25 other institutions to lead the effort to modernize the world’s knowledge on arthropod parasites using a three-year, $4.3 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. The Terrestrial Parasite Tracker project will mobilize data and images from more than 1.3 million arthropod specimens from research collections across the United States.”
