international online community for dna barcoding professionals
The Biodiversity Institute of Ontario offers a distance education course in DNA Barcoding. This course is an exclusively web-based course which is offered over an eight week period starting on July 8th. On average, six to eight hours of study time are required each week to study the course material which will consist of reading, audio and video material. Participants will have weekly assignments/quizzes and have plenty of opportunities to…Continue

I have recently been awarded Major Research Project in the above subject by UGC, New Delhi, India. Very soon , I will be getting grant for the launch of the project. My fellows and other users of this forum are requested to recommend NET qualified Candidates with background in molecular taxonomy (particularly CO1 based DNA Barcoding) and traditional (morphological) taxonomy of Insects for one position of JRF. Enrollment for PhD will be done with Panjab University, Chandigarh or Punjabi…Continue

Border inspectors and wildlife officials around the world are constantly on the lookout for endangered species that are being killed and trafficked in violation of national laws and international treaties. Sometimes the objects are easily identified as coming from a particular endangered species but many cannot be identified, even by expert taxonomists. ‘Bushmeat’ is often trafficked as dried smoked meat that has been removed from bones that might have diagnostic features. Endangered…Continue

Hello, people I am new here.I am from Brazil. Maybe, someone can help me. I am now writing a research project, which part of it includes the use de DNA barcode (COI gene) to identify some bee especies. However, After I read the literature, I found alot of criticism and trobles to use barcode for bee. From Hetereplasmy to Wolbachia. So, my questions are:
1) What is the official position of the iBOL about this criticisms?
2) Is there any other marker that can be use alone ou…Continue

Dr. Mehrdad Hajibabaei, Biomonitoring 2.0 project leader, has published a new paper entitled “The golden age of DNA metasystematics” in the journal Trends in Genetics.
From the Summary: “The convergence of next-generation sequencing and DNA barcoding has sparked a golden age of ‘DNA metasystematics’, allowing researchers to understand the biodiversity of an entire ecosystem solely through DNA information, and transforming the way we view the living world around…Continue

Dear all, i did my Ph.D., work in earthworm molecular sequencing by using 658 bp of COI gene, so i keep the term DNA Barcoding in my thesis title. when my synopsis presentation some people were not satisfied and they were suggest me to reconsider the term DNA Barcoding, now my question is, can i use the term DNA Barcoding in my thesis title or not?

Our paper on sliding window analyses for optimal selection of mini-barcodes has been published in PLoS One. You can download it from here: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0038215
This is particularly useful to study degraded or ancient DNA or if you do next generation sequencing. The method is based on the R package…Continue

A paper that myself and 28 co-authors have been working on for the past several years, “Wolbachia and DNA Barcoding Insects: Patterns, Potential, and Problems” came out late last week in PLoSONE (7(5): e36514). In it, we examine the extent to which COI sequences from Wolbachia can be detected in routine insect DNA barcoding. We further assessed the impact of Wolbachia upon…Continue
