New primers and protocols for matK DNA barcoding
These pdfs detail clade-specific primer sets & protocols for the matK barcode region in land plants. These protocols were developed by Alan Forrest, in collaboration with Luke Dunning, Aron Fazekas, Lianming Gao, Sean Graham, Mehrdad Hajibabaei, Pete Hollingsworth, Maria Kuzmina and Damon Little, and the work was funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation,
If you use these primers please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is to enable us to provide protocol updates and to solicit feedback on how well the primers perform.
The folder below contains the matK sequence alignments which were used for primer design. These alignments are useful for designing further taxon-specific primers and also for assessing levels of primer mismatch
