Hi. I’m Wonhoon and working as postdoctoral position at Seoul National University (South Korea). I’m interesting in Korean Forest Insect Pests DNA barcoding. Until now, I have made barcode sequences about 200 species belong to six orders. I hope to learn many developed methods and share my experiences related in barcode researches in this community.

Thank you very much.

Hi, i am currently confronted with very weak matK amplification of some species. We use dried material to extract DNA from. I am still not convinced that the extraction is the problem.
Did your group solve their problems?

My group is having some problems with matK amplification for fresh and herbarium samples, anybody have a recommendation or a protocol to follow? to improve the PCR reaction?

thanks a lot
