A group of students at the University of Maryland have begun crowdfunding to sequence the genome of the water fern, Marsilea vestita starting June 1. This is a one month effort.

Please visit launch.umd.edu to donate or to get more information.

If you can pass this along, that would be greatly appreciated !

Getting a fern into the NCBI genome database will be an important step towards understand plant evolution.
