Well, I personally view it as corporate funding driven BS!

 Dear Taxacomers,
 I heard a news item this morning in
 Australia regarding the Earth BioGenome
 Project which appears to be having some
 sort of launch around now.
 referring back to this April 2018
 My take is that this is of relevance to
 the taxonomic community in a number
 of ways - e.g. to reveal cryptic
 species, other taxa that may in fact be
 the same, etc. etc. - as well as
 drawing heavily on the work of taxonomists
 to date (although a lot of the
 species-intensive inventorying is likely to
 be in the out years). I'd be interested
 to hear how others in the taxonomy
 world are viewing this...
 Regards to all - Tony
