DNA barcoding is a taxonomic method that uses a short genetic marker in an organisms DNA to identify it as belonging to a particular species. It differs from molecular phylogeny in that the main goal is not to determine patterns of relationship but to identify an unknown sample in terms of a preexisting classification. Although barcodes are sometimes used in an effort to identify unknown species or assess whether species should be combined or separated, the utility of DNA barcoding for these purposes is subject to debate. The most commonly used barcode region for animals and protists is a segment of approximately 600 base pairs of the mitochondrial gene cytochrome oxidase I (COI or COX1). This differs in the case of fungi, where part of Internal Transcribed Spacer 2 (ITS2) between rRNA genes is used, and again in plants, where multiple regions are used. Applications include, for example, identifying plant leaves even when flowers or fruit are not available, identifying insect larvae (which may ...
This is the first time that weve used genetic barcodes-DNA sequences unique to each living organism-to characterize an entire amphibian community," said Eldredge Bermingham, STRI director and co-author. "STRI has also done barcoding on this scale for tropical trees on in our forest dynamics-monitoring plot in Panama. The before-and-after approach we took with the frogs tells us exactly what was lost to this deadly disease-33 percent of their evolutionary history.". The U.S. National Science Foundation and the Bay and Paul Foundation funded the field work for this study, which is published online by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. Collection permits were provided by Panamas Environmental Authority, ANAM.. STRI, headquartered in Panama City, Panama, is a unit of the Smithsonian Institution. The institute furthers the understanding of tropical nature and its importance to human welfare, trains students to conduct research in the tropics and promotes conservation by increasing ...
In this study, we used several molecular techniques to develop a fast and reliable protocol (DNA Verity Test, DVT) for the characterization and confirmation of the species or taxa present in herbal infusions. As a model plant for this protocol, Camellia sinensis, a traditional tea plant, was selected due to the following reasons: its historical popularity as a (healthy) beverage, its high selling value, the importation of barely recognizable raw product (i.e., crushed), and the scarcity of studies concerning adulterants or contamination. The DNA Verity Test includes both the sequencing of DNA barcoding markers and genotyping of labeled-PCR DNA barcoding fragments for each sample analyzed. This protocol (DVT) was successively applied to verify the authenticity of 32 commercial teas (simple or admixture), and the main results can be summarized as follows: (1) the DVT protocol is suitable to detect adulteration in tea matrices (contaminations or absence of certified ingredients), and the method can ...

Blanco-Bercial, L., Cornils, A., Copley, N., Bucklin, A. 2014. DNA barcoding of marine copepods: assessment of analytical approaches to species identification. PLOS Currents Tree of Life. 2014 Jun 23. Edition 1 (doi:10.1371/currents.tol.cdf8b74881f87e3b01d56b43791626d2). More than 2,500 species of copepods (Class Maxillopoda; Subclass Copepoda) occur in the marine planktonic environment. The exceptional morphological conservation of the group, with numerous sibling species groups, makes the identification of species challenging, even for expert taxonomists. Molecular approaches to species identification have allowed rapid detection, discrimination, and identification of species based on DNA sequencing of single specimens and environmental samples. Despite the recent development of diverse genetic and genomic markers, the barcode region of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene remains a useful and - in some cases - unequaled diagnostic character for species-level ...
DNA barcoding is a promising approach to the diagnosis of biological diversity in which DNA sequences serve as the primary key for information retrieval. Most existing software for evolutionary analysis of DNA sequences was designed for phylogenetic analyses and, hence, those algorithms do not offer appropriate solutions for the rapid, but precise analyses needed for DNA barcoding, and are also unable to process the often large comparative datasets. We developed a flexible software tool for DNA taxonomy, named TaxI. This program calculates sequence divergences between a query sequence (taxon to be barcoded) and each sequence of a dataset of reference sequences defined by the user. Because the analysis is based on separate pairwise alignments this software is also able to work with sequences characterized by multiple insertions and deletions that are difficult to align in large sequence sets (i.e. thousands of sequences) by multiple alignment algorithms because of computational restrictions. ...
Kolkata, Feb 7 (IANS) Picture this: A bird strikes an aircraft and all that is left is a mass of feathers. What can you do to identify the vulnerable species, save it and ensure safe air travel at the same time? Zooming in on unique genetic labels through DNA barcoding could be the key, say Indian researchers. "Identification of bird species helps in understanding the behavior of birds in terms of its habitat, diet and the like. This data helps in the management of birds for air safety management and could lower bird strikes," Yogesh Shouche, a senior scientist at Microbial Culture Collection (MCC), National Center for Cell Science (NCCS), Pune, told IANS.. Just as shopkeepers scan the similar-yet-different zebra stripes (barcodes) on products to keep track of what they sell and what is in stock, examining certain ubiquitous genetic sequences can differentiate one species from another with high accuracy.. For bird strikes, extreme accuracy is needed since the impact destroys the bodies beyond ...
Abstract Extreme environments, such as subterranean habitats, are suspected to be responsible for morphologically inseparable cryptic or sibling species and can bias biodiversity assessment. A DNA barcode is a short, standardized DNA sequence used for taxonomic purposes and has the potential to lessen the challenges presented by a biotic inventory. Here, we investigate the diversity of the genus Leptonetela Kratochví l, 1978 that is endemic to karst systems in Eurasia using DNA barcoding. We analyzed 624 specimens using one mitochondrial gene fragment (COI). The results show that DNA barcoding is an efficient and rapid species identification method in this genus. DNA barcoding gap and automatic barcode gap discovery (ABGD) analyses indicated the existence of 90 species, a result consistent with previous taxonomic hypotheses, and supported the existence of extreme male pedipalpal tibial spine and median apophysis polymorphism in Leptonetela species, with direct implications for the taxonomy of ...
Ambient temperature is an important factor influencing many physiological processes, including antioxidant defense and immunity. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that antioxidant defense and immunity are suppressed by high and low temperature treatment in Brandts voles (Lasiopodomys brandtii). Thirty male voles were randomly assigned into different temperature groups (4, 23, and 32 °C, n=10 for each group), with the treatment course lasting for 27 d. Results showed that low temperature increased gross energy intake (GEI) and liver, heart, and kidney mass, but decreased body fat mass and dry carcass mass. With the decline in temperature, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) concentration, which is indicative of reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, increased in the liver, decreased in the heart, and was unchanged in the kidney, testis, and small intestine. Lipid peroxidation indicated by malonaldehyde (MDA) content in the liver, heart, kidney, testis, and small intestine did not differ among ...
In recent years, DNA barcoding is considered as a universal species identification method for plants. It mainly involves discrimination of species through standardized molecular marker gene and is gaining support from the taxonomists as well. DNA barcoding has wider applications in different studies namely to predict cryptic species, to study biological samples in forensics and conservation sciences for characterization of biodiversity; to track inventory for plants identity or purity and in ecological species diversity studies [1-4]. Various molecular markers have been used for DNA barcoding studies. A 650 base pair (bp) of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase unit I (COI) gene was used as a barcode in various organisms such as animals, birds, fishes, insects and nematodes [4-8]. A specific region of the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) gene is the well-studied DNA barcode for fungi [9]. In plant DNA barcoding, there has been extensive debate about the locus choice; several ...

The history of Radix auricularia in North America goes back to before 1869 when it was found near Troy, New York, apparently introduced with plants from Europe. By the early 1900s it had spread to multiple locations in the Great Lakes. Currently, this exotic species is still expanding its range in the western U.S. and Canada. We had a new piece of information, though. Back in 2016 when we collected a big-ear radix from Stormy Lake near Nikiski, we had sent off a tissue sample for identification by DNA barcoding, an inexpensive identification method using standardized, short sequences of DNA. We had received an identification of Radix auricularia, confirming our initial identification, but we had not examined the genetic data further. So I compared the Kenai sequence with DNA barcode sequences of Radix auricularia from around the world that were publicly available through online databases. The barcode sequence from the Kenai Peninsula specimen was closest to sequences from Kamchatka and the Kuril ...

What I find most remarkable is that BOLD accessions, which represent only 3.4% of the analysed data, contributed a large portion of the total georeferenced (including accessions with geocoding) sequences (20.2%), and about half (47.3%) of the originally georeferenced accessions. This is not surprising as the DNA barcoding community naturally sees the value in sharing this information and BOLD supports as part of its metadata package. Actually, it is at least partially enforced as it is not possible to generate records on BOLD without basic information on the country of origin. The same requirement is part of the to-dos in order to obtain the BARCODE keyword for a GenBank record. Furthermore, researchers are always encouraged to provide lat/lon information to BOLD. Interestingly, tetrapod barcoding data are likely rather small in comparison with other datasets, e.g. fish or arthropods. A similar analysis of the latter should provide even higher proportions because the amount of fully ...
Genus Mucuna belongs to the family Fabaceae is one of the potential underutilized legumes which include 150 species of annual and perennial species of pantropical distribution. Members of this genus possess several promising nutritional and agronomic attributes it has received wide-ranging attention from pharmaceutical industries, nutritional chemists and agronomists alike in recent years. The evolution and relationship among different Mucuna taxa (both at species and sub-species level) of India have remained unknown except M. pruriens. Because of this, it is necessary to conduct research at the species level as well as to assess phenetic relationships among different taxa in India to place the genus in right taxonomic and phylogenetic perspective. The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) - Plant working group revealed the utility of nuclear Internal Transcribed Spacer (nrITS) region of the nuclear ribosomal cistron (18S-5.8S-26S) and chloroplast regions like trnH-psbA, matK and rbcL ...
Orinus is an alpine endemic genus of Poaceae. Because of the imperfect specimens, high level of intraspecific morphological variability, and homoplasies of morphological characters, it is relatively difficult to delimitate species of Orinus by using morphology alone. To this end, the DNA barcoding has shown great potential in identifying species.

Nontuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM) are a diverse group of organisms that are ubiquitous in both natural and manmade environments [1]. Though less notorious than Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), NTM infections are also of clinical significance and have been associated with worldwide outbreaks in the past. A previous study showed that the clinical symptoms and iconography representation of NTM were similar to MTB making it difficult to differentiate between the two diseases. Furthermore, treatment is also more difficult because most of NTM are naturally resistant to anti-tuberculosis drugs [2]. Thus, there is an urgent clinical need for tools that would enable accurate differentiation of MTB from NTM-induced disease. Since the genomes of different mycobacteria have been sequenced, it is now possible for us to generate a novel DNA barcoding technology for genotyping of mycobacteria.. Clinically, mycobacteria were traditionally characterized based on acid-fastness, smear and culture morphology, ...
DNA barcoding for botanicals has a bright future, despite comments that it may not yet be fit for purpose, and the next 2-3 years will see a huge shift towards the robust and reliable technology, says the CEO of AuthenTechnologies.
CBG provides a standard sampling kit to all GMP participants. This includes a brand new Townes style Malaise trap and typically a years worth of collection bottles. Partners provide ethanol for killing and preserving samples and are responsible for changing the collection bottle once every week for the duration of the flight season.. All collection bottles are shipped for subsequent processing at CBG. Samples are accessioned, specimens were identified to order, arrayed, labeled, databased, and tissue-sampled for genetic analysis. All arthropods are barcoded, with the exception of a few very common species of Collembola, where only a few individuals from each trap sample were analyzed. Standard barcoding protocols are followed to recover the barcode region of cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene. The barcode sequences, specimen images and collateral data are uploaded to BOLD under the Global Malaise Program campaign. Barcoded specimens are assigned to an existing or new Barcode Index ...
Egg: This egg develops no distinguishing features; but always appears bright and glassy, the clear yolk separating it from several clupeiforms (DIIA1 & DIIA2) of similar size (A). The advanced embryo develops a line of fine black pigment spots down the body, only visible on a white background. Incubation is about 50-55 hours; the eggs in Plate A illustrate the 24-hour development difference. Larva: The early larva has an elongate gut and a myomere count in excess of 45 (B). Four blotches of black pigment, 3 pre-anal and 1 midtail, adorn the 3-4 day larva (C). B: NH, C: 3 days (24 C).. The only synodontid with a smooth-shelled egg listed by both Ikeda & Mito (1988) and Shao et. al. (2001), is S. elongata. The latter authors list S. undosquamis as having a honeycomb pattern on the egg surface. Thirteen hatched larvae have been sequenced, all matching the DNA barcode sequence of 5 locally collected adult S. undosquamis (BOLD). Further larvae will be sequenced to establish whether any other local ...
A well‐covered reference library is crucial for successful identification of species by DNA barcoding. The biggest difficulty in building such a reference library is the lack of materials of organisms. Herbarium collections are potentially an enormous resource of materials. In this study, we demonstrate that it is likely to build such reference libraries using the reconstructed (self‐primed PCR am ...
The research project will assess the potential for DNA barcoding to detect aquatic invasive plant species Aquatic species are particularly difficult to identify, but DNA barcoding has shown promise for detecting aquatic animal species. The research will fund a literature review evidence that would support the development of DNA barcoding and other DNA detection methods for three important invasive species; Cabomba caroliniana (fanwort), Myriophyllum heterophyllum (broadleaf watermilfoil) and Lagarosiphon major (curly waterweed) and assess wider applicability for aquatic species ...

Animal cell lines are used in the production of approved biopharmaceuticals and as well as in scientific research for a better understanding in areas of developmental biology, protein expression, and genetic evolution. In recent years there is growing importance of animal cultures as models of human diseases providing taxonomic equivalents resembling human physiology. Interspecies cross-contamination Reasons for an unsuccessful translation between species (mouse/human) or for irreproducibility of data from studies based on animal cell lines are numerous, though use of false animal cell lines due to insufficient verification of species-specific models is a contributing factor. DNA Barcoding Verification of animal species should rely on rapid and accurate identification of animal cell lines. Isolation of mitochondrial DNA, PCR amplification of Cytochrome C Oxidase I (COI), direct amplicon sequencing and DNA sequence comparison (DNA barcoding) has become a reliable and rapid method to provide ...
2. Primarily based on Anna-Marie Levers article, DNA barcode revealed in crops (BBC Information, 6 February 2008), when crops had been hybrids whose genome was rearranged by means of pure and synthetic cross-breeding, which "confuse[d] matK gene data". When discovery that the matK gene might function a pure barcode in crops was made, its location was in keeping with that in animals - the barcode genes in each are positioned in mobile vitality facilities outdoors the nucleus (mitochondria function "tiny powerhouses" in animal cells whereas chloroplasts are concerned in plant photosynthesis) since per Anna-Marie Lever, DNA barcode revealed in crops, "nuclear genes normally evolve too quickly to differentiate between [organisms] of the identical species." Nonetheless, in keeping with mitochronidrial genes in animals, "chloroplast genes [in plants] evolve at a slower fee, permitting for [distinguishment between the same species, and] quick sufficient for variations to happen within the DNA code ...
Disclosed is an optical disk barcode forming method wherein, as information to be barcoded, position information for piracy prevention, which is a form of ID, is coded as a barcode and is recorded by laser trimming on a reflective film in a PCA area of an optical disk. When playing back the thus manufactured optical disk on a reproduction apparatus, the barcode data can be played back using the same optical pickup.
DNA barcoding is a way to identify species via their species-specific genetic signatures. To do this for pollen, scientists sequence the DNA from a genetic region known to occur in all plants, but which varies from species to species. There are two parts to the standardized sequence we use for plant DNA barcoding. One is a section of the large subunit of a gene called ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (rbcL for short). The other is a gene called maturase-K (matK). These genes are both essential for a plant to survive, and are thus present in all plants. Once an investigator sequences these gene regions from a sample, they can be compared to a database containing all the known DNA sequences of rbcL and matK to identify the species ...

DNA barcoding as an approach for species identification is rapidly increasing in popularity. However, it remains unclear which statistical procedures should accompany the technique to provide a measure of uncertainty. Here we describe a likelihood ratio test which can be used to test if a sampled sequence is a member of an a priori specified species. We investigate the performance of the test using coalescence simulations, as well as using the real data from butterflies and frogs representing two kinds of challenge for DNA barcoding: extremely low and extremely high levels of sequence variability. ...

The barcodes on the shRNAmir vectors (pSM2, pSMP, pGIPZ, pTRIPZ) are ~60nt unique sequences cloned into the vector downstream of the shRNA. This barcode being unique to each shRNA clone enables screening with pools of shRNA clones. The underlying concept is that by PCR amplification of integrated DNAs one can count the number of cells that contain a specific shRNA vector. This is measured by hybridizing genomic PCR products containing the barcodes to custom microarrays that contain the complement of these barcode sequences. By comparing barcode representations from cell populations treated in different ways one can assess the consequences of expressing a given individual shRNA on the cells response to the treatment. For example, if a particular shRNA provided resistance to a growth inhibitor stimulus then the representation of its associated barcode should be increased after treatment. If a given shRNA sensitized a population to a specific stress, then the relative abundance of its barcode ...
DNA barcoding is short genetic sequences used to identify a particular species. With the rapid growth and ease of sequencing, DNA barcodes have been recorded for many higher order species. This means that if we can obtain a small piece of tissue from a taxonomically ambiguous organism we can extract, amplify and sequence their DNA to read their barcode. This barcode can then be uploaded to ...

Please have a look at the access requirements of the HMDB web site. Even though you are not directly accessing their site by using our library we ask that you follow their request for citing the group (http://www.hmdb.ca/citing) in any publications that use the library in any substantial way. The HMDB spectral entries were not collected with the Chenomx library needs in mind. With that in mind:. HMDB is only recommended for identification and relative quantification.. We also ask that you accept that Chenomx has not been part of the creation of that HMDB data and as such we cannot guarantee that all the data is accurate and validated. However, we feel that there is value in being able to access the HMDB from within the Chenomx software and take advantage of our searching, identification and concentration measurement functionality.The results after using the HMDB entries can be tested separately for accuracy using other methods. For example, a user can create a full Chenomx standard signature if ...
