What is the African Centre for DNA Barcoding

The African Centre for DNA Barcoding (ACDB) is a division of the department of Botany & Plant Biotechnology within the Faculty of Science at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. Formally established in 2010, this centre aims to remain at the forefront of research on DNA barcoding and its applicability to biosecurity, surveillance and biodiversity surveys in Africa.

The mission of the African Centre for DNA Barcoding is to fill the knowledge gap and strengthen research frameworks for international, regional and inter-institutional co-operation in Africa, especially within the modern field of DNA technology for biodiversity science – such as DNA barcoding.

What We Did for Them

Gearbox Creative gave ACDB’s website and branding a full make over. The new site is clean and easy to navigate. Gearbox Creative’s copywriter collaborated with members of the ACDB staff in the creation of their latest news blogs and 2017 photo galleries.

In addition, ACDB is organising the 7th International Barcode of Life Conference. Gearbox Creative handles all the social media for this upcoming conference. For more on this project click here.
