Bevan Weir replied to Conrad Schoch's discussion 'ITS barcode requirements V2' in the group Fungi
"#8: Multiple, divergent ITS barcode sequences are possible for a single species. Interesting. So barcodes could be submitted from a genome sequence (or clone libraries) with all the different haplotypes? These could well be different than the…"

Bevan Weir replied to Conrad Schoch's discussion 'Definition of an acceptable Fungal ITS barcode' in the group Fungi
"Hi, On points 4&5 are these inteneted to be minimum standards or strict limits? Would a longer sequence still meet the barcode critera? Alignment of sequences would certainly be easier if these were strict limits, however enforcing these…"

"Hi, do you have a nice reference sequence we can use with the introns/exons annotated?"

Bevan Weir replied to Marieka Gryzenhout's discussion 'Collecting macrofungi for barcoding' in the group Fungi
"Hi,   What I have done in the past is put a small amount of fresh tissue in a buffer (e.g. CTAB) in a 1.5 mL tube, then dry down the rest of the specimen for the herbarium. You will need to have collection codes to link the samples of course.…"

Conrad Schoch replied to Bevan Weir's discussion 'GenBank submission of sequences from barcoding paper' in the group Fungi
"For those not already submitted we can do a batch submission through the Biolomics database. We will still need chromatograms to make some of these (the ITS sequences) barcodes however."

GenBank submission of sequences from barcoding paper

Hi, What was the final verdict for submitting the sequences that we produced for the barcoding paper? Are we supposed to do it ourselves indivudulally, or is someone doing it for all the sequences in one batch submission? Thanks, BevanSee More

Fourth International Barcode of Life Conference at University of Adelaide

November 28, 2011 to December 3, 2011
The University of Adelaide will host the first-ever Southern Hemisphere barcode conference, co-organized by CBOL and co-hosted by several biodiversity institutions and initiatives in Australia.  The goals of the conference are: highlighting the great progress barcoding has made since the Mexico City Conference in November 2009; learning about barcoding activities in Australia and the region; and bringing barcoders together to exchange ideas and plan new activities. The week’s events will start…See More

Bevan Weir replied to Conrad Schoch's discussion 'Problems with ITS' in the group Fungi
"ITS also does not always work for species discrimination in the Ascomycota as well, but I support an ITS barcode, because we need something that will work for all fungi. If the database is well populated then it will be apparent if a match to more…"
