Current Project(s)
Based on funding from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National Science Foundation of China, we are currently establishing ColdCode (working title): an initiative to barcode all species of amphibians and non-avian reptiles. The project is centered at the Kunming Institute of Zoology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences. A Steering Committee for the project is now being formed. We have developed universal COI primers for amphibians, a previous stumbling block. Current major initiatives involve the barcoding of Chinese and Southeast Asian species. Iam also involved with barcodingparasitic wasps, with the laboratory of Prof. Da-wei Huang, Institute of Zoology (Beijing), CAS.
