i5k Species Nominations
i5k wants to know what arthropod species you want to see sequenced. We understand that you may not have answers for all of the questions below, but please provide as much information as you have to help us best evaluate the species for sequencing.

Feel free to nominate a species even if others have already done so, especially if you have additional information to add or would like to participate in the analysis if it is selected for sequencing.

If you have more than 10 species to nominate and would like to enter data using a spreadsheet, please contact: arthropodcommunity@gmail.com

For more information about the nominations process please visit:
