Proposing priority species for genome sequencing in the Darwin Tree of Life project
The Darwin Tree of Life project (darwintreeoflife.org) will eventually sequence all described eukaryotic species in Britain and Ireland, but we'd like community input into which of these should be done first. A list of species for which sequencing is already underway can be explored at https://tolqc.cog.sanger.ac.uk/index.html . Please feel free to suggest multiple species - you will have to fill in a form for each species separately. We will collate and consider all responses, but our actual prioritisation will involve multiple factors alongside this community input, so we can not commit to satisfying everyone’s requests.
Thank you for participating.

Please list the species name (Linnaean binomial) of a single eukaryotic species found in Britain and Ireland that should be high priority for building a reference genome ... *
What is the species' common name?
If there is no common name, just leave this blank.
... and because some Linnaean names are used more than once, please also indicate the Family that this species belongs to: *
... and the Phylum that this species belongs to: *
In DToL we have organised sample acquisition through six working groups with expertise in specific areas of the biota. Please indicate here which working group you think your species is covered by.
