"I agree with Swapnil. Gentle squeeze on the thorax works well and does not cause any intermediate or downstream DNA damage. We have used killing jars (with chloroform soaked cotton) also for collecting and killing Moths and the DNA quality or yield…"

DNA Barcoding Course at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris at Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle

February 7, 2011 at 9am to February 11, 2011 at 5pm
A five-day workshop covering integrative taxonomy and taxonomic expertise in the framework of the DNA barcoding initiative. There is no course fee, but no support towards travel, lodging or subsistence will be provided. Priority will be given to PhD students. Interested parties may apply to the course at .Update 17 Nov:EDIT (European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy) has awarded 4 grants of 250.00 EUR each to students…See More

Mansi Mungee replied to Mansi Mungee's discussion 'Barcoding Lepidoptera'
"And with Barcoding point of view, longer sequences are naturally expected to give better inferences about phylogeny or are the standard ~700 bp just about as good?"

Syed Abdullah Gilani replied to Mansi Mungee's discussion 'Barcoding Lepidoptera'
"Longer genes +1kb and sometimes above 800 bp, may not give good quality sequences generally upto 100 bp first reads when doing direct sequencing. In that case, either divide the gene into portions of 400-600 bp with designing primers on that gene…"

Hi all

I am about to start my work on Barcoding the Moths of North-East India and could absolutely use any help that I can get.

The works of Cameron and Whiting, amongst others, have led me to thinking about the possibility of using additional mt genes, apart from the conventional COI. The data on nad2, nad3 and nad4 seems convincing.

I would like to know the limitations or pitfalls of using longer gene sequences for purpose of establishing phylogeny, since I am targeting… Continue

Sorry for late reply, Yes I will be indeed happy to share information on DNA barcoding

we don't have facilities in our dept. after this training i will go for the major project and wish to create facilities. till then is it possible to do barcoding with some agency. I did traditional taxonomy. do tell me in brief - how to proceed. i understand the theory.

Hi Mansi

Thanks for your information on your planned work. Please let me (dclees at gmail dot com) know where to send the paper.

Best wishes

Hi Mansi,

Congratulations on your exciting new initiative! A question. Are you or another in your team aiming eventually to cover microlepidopteran groups? Rodolphe Rougerie and I (with colleagues) have as it happens just published on the so far known Micropterigidae of North-east India (check out also project MICZS). If you don't have the paper, I'll be happy to send you. I really hope you can find some more!

Best wishes
