I would like to ask a question where gardening overlaps with genetics ("Plant DNA barcoding as citizen science project?").
Is this something that is appropriate on this site or should I try Biology Stack Exchange (where I am currently not a member) instead?
Here is a first draft:
DNA barcoding can be used for identifying organisms (including plants) by inspecting their DNA for short genetic markers.
Is there any recommended recipe or writeup from which one can deduce whether it is feasible to conduct a citizen science project in this area and to estimate costs for a whole cycle (preparing plant material, sending it to lab, accessing databases, etc.)
