HudsonAlpha kicks off Bicentennial Barcoding project in Jackson County

A new program for Jackson County students will not only be a big benefit to them but the state of Alabama as well.

HudsonAlpha is collaborating with the extension system in Jackson County to identify plant biodiversity in Alabama. Jennifer Carden with HudsonAlpha said they approached the Alabama Bicentennial Commission with their vision, which ultimately led to the study.

“Thanks to the Lyndhurst Foundation, they introduced us to the Graham Farm Nature Center as one of the areas that was a hub for biodiversity in Jackson County in Alabama,” said Carden.
