"Imagine a day when any living thing can be identified accurately and rapidly to the species level using a hand-held device the size of a cellular phone. A day when the biodiversity of an entire nation can be inventoried and monitored... the method that will enable this advance is 'DNA barcoding', an approach that employs a small fragment of DNA, a portion of a single gene, to provide a unique identifier - a 'DNA barcode' - for each living species on Earth." - Barcode of Life project

Zinhar is a bioscan in slow motion, complete with the inevitable delays, errors and complications that are missing from the rosy picture of species barcoding suggested above. To complete the scan for life, investigate each scene and perform simple tasks that will either enable access to new scenes or activate a section of the master barcode.
