"Hi - I'm interested in DNA barcoding native freshwater mussels (Bivalvia:Unionidae) found in Mexico to expand existing efforts ongoing in Texas and other areas of the US. Does anyone have contacts of people working with freshwater mussels…"
I’m involved in, or am interested in the following barcoding initiatives
All Birds Barcoding Initiative, Leading Labs Network
I’m involved in or interested in the following iBOL Working Groups
WG2.1 Barcoding Biotas, WG2.2 Museum Life
I’m involved in the following aspects of barcoding:
Fieldwork/specimen collecting, Museum work/specimen curation, Labwork/generating barcode sequences, Management of barcode data, Analysis of barcode data, Using barcode data in taxonomy/systematic biology, Using barcode data for other applications, Organizing/managing barcoding projects, Science policy related to barcoding
El sitio web de MexBOL no está actualizado (desafortunadamente). Es probable que CONABIO abra otra convocatoria este año pero no lo sé. También estuvo la convocatoria de CONACYT para MexBOl en octubre pero se cerró. En cuanto tenga noticia de alguna semejante les aviso, tratando de correr la voz. En los Fondos Mixtos de CONACYT hay buenas probabilidades. Saludos, Patricia
Buenas Tardes!!! Me llamo Ashutosh Sharma, soy estudiante del doctorado en biotechnologia en la UAEM, Cuernavaca.
Quieremos escribir un proyecto de DNA Barcode para una planta Mexicana con que estamos trbajando. Entonces estuve chekando la informacion en el sitio de Mexbol pero ya se termino el proceso para 2009. Poreso le queria preguntar que usted sabe, si Mexbol va a aceptar los proyectos para 2010 y cuando?
It is up to you if you think the triplet is a better ID on BOLD - we recommend that the IDs match what is on the voucher specimen.
Thanks for this report about the tree display-I'll take a look at this and let you know.
All is going well in Guelph! Hope you are doing good!
BOLD is meant to accept colons in Sample IDs so you should have no problems uploading or changing Sample IDs to include them. I just tested this as well to confirm. If you are renaming a lot of Sample IDs, feel free to email me and I can assist by doing this in bulk. firstname.lastname@example.org
