ORG.one supports the sequencing of species from the IUCN Red List, specifically the critically endangered and extinct in the wild categories (more than 8000 species). Established in 1964, the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species. The list is a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity.
