international online community for dna barcoding professionals
Hello! I am studying biology at University of Rome "La Sapienza". My thesis is on DNA-barcode of Antarctica molluscs museum samples, mainly bivalvia and gasteropoda, conserved in ethanol since 2004. Now I am trying to extract and amplify but I have some problem (maybe wrong primers) with several samples.
I have just join this community but I think that will be very helpful!
I hope your research is going well! Were you able to extract and amplify your ethanol-preserved tissue samples? Did you have to move to different primers? And which ones did you try? I am starting sequencing my shellfish samples (bivalves) tomorrow, actually! I would love to hear more about your work, and I would greatly appreciate any tips/suggestions/guidance you may have for me.
All the Best,
I am Sourajyoti Chakraborty, undergraduate student majoring in Zoology at Karimganj College, Assam University. Its in one of the remotest areas of North-Eastern India. I am very much interested in Systematic Zoology and I was very much amazed when I learnt that many new species are being discovered based on DNA Barcoding. Thus my interest grew in DNA Barcoding. Neither I have any access to the infrastructure required for Barcoding nor I am involved in any research projects, but still to know and learn the basics I joined CBOL.
I also want to attend workshops, seminars, webinars on DNA Barcoding techniques and get some hands on training. So any information about such activities in India from anyone will be more than welcome.
With warm regards,
My group is ants (Formicidae: Hymenoptera), taxonomy, conservation, ecology and evolutionary biology, apart from DNA barcoding. I am already associated with Formicidae Barcode of Life (FIBOL) and it would be nice if I am able to discuss/participate in CBOL discussions.
I'm Reli Ann Faye Rogado, an undergraduate majoring in Computer Science at the University of the Philippines - Los Bañ
os. I'm currently on the stage of mapping out the methodology for my special problem proposal and I'm proposing a web-based repository of DNA barcodes of endemic chickens in the Philippines.
I still don't have a clear plan on how I'm going to implement the repository. Hence, I have joined this community with the hopes of getting some assistance to help me understand the workflow of DNA barcoding especially in the aspects of database generation and management.
