international online community for dna barcoding professionals
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.

I have been worked as Research Fellow for 2 years in National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, Nagpur (INDIA). I have been active research team member on many Environmental Impact Assessment Studies.
I have been nominated as Honorary Forest Taxonomist by Conservator of Forests, Nagpur Division, Nagpur (India) for the period 2002-2005. I have been acted as Plant taxonomist in Madhughat Project sponsored by Finance Department, Zilla Parishad Amravati from 1997-2001.
Presntly I am serving at the Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji College, Omerga (affiliated to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad, India) as a Assistant Professor & Head, Department of Botany since 2005.
I am involved in the administration board of the college as member of IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) last 05 years.
Since 2001 my research has focused on Ethnobotanical Studies. I have published one reference publication entitled " Additions to the Flora of Melghat" (1999), Twelve (12) research papers in National and international Journals.
I am teaching Diversity of Microbes, Cryptogamic diversity, Angiosperm & Gymnosperms diversity, Ecology and Environment, Economic Botany & Ethnobotany, etc. since 1999 at the colleges and Insititutions.
i have to work as a team man.and how can i help.and any role of Bioinformatics is there.how to work.please reply me.
My name is Lyam Paul, A scientific officer with National Center for genetic Resources and Biotechnology NACGRAB, Ibadan, Nigeria. I am interested in utilizing DNA barcoding technique for the proper Identification, conservation and sustainable utility of indigenous plant species in Nigeria especially species with endangered and threatened conservation status. I am hoping that this community will connect me to a network of scientist with an in-dept knowledge of DNA barcoding and who i can easily contact in the course of applying the technique especially in situations where clarity is required to arrive at a decision. I also hope to be updated on DNA barcoding progress from different groups as this can enhance my knowledge of barcoding, the Centre i work for and Nigeria at large.
I express my sincere delight in joining the barcode community.
Hi! I am Prasanna, PhD student under Dr. S. Ajmal Khan at Faculty of Marine Science, Annamalai University.
Nice to see people here concerned deep in DNA barcoding. We have initiated a program in DNA barcoding on 2007 and so far we have completed barcoding 203 species of marine fauna including fin fishes, shell fishes, bivalves, ect. The forte of our centre is biodiversity were one can find taxonomist to any marine phyla. If not exaggerating, we are the first to initiate barcoding activity in India. Currently we are working with egg mass and other inanimate materials from Ocean for barcoding. The recent ongoing project on detecting mobility of eggs and larvae in marine system using DNA barcodes is adding fuel to our growing DNA barcode database.. I would love to hear and discuss with colleagues working on dna barcoding in marine realm.. cheers!!!
Greetings, everyone! I am Seethapathy and im working in Institute of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, Bangalore, India. As a research scholar, currently developing Molecular markers for the authentication of Medicinal plants from its adulterants and substitutes by using ITS primers.. and i have desire to establish this work up to DNA barcoding. im keep on reading the published articles and other datas about Barcoding.
I would be glad to know whether anybody else may be interested in DNA Barcoding for the medicinal plants used in Ayurveda i could be useful for me...
