WHAT'S NEW

Full-length barcodes for 1$

We developed a new pipeline based on Illumina sequencing platform and SOAPBarcode program to produce full-length COI barcodes at just 1/10 of current cost. This new method will hopefully further expand both taxonomic and geographic coverages of reference DNA barcodes, enabling large-scale molecular ecology studies. Liu, S.#, C. Yang#, C. Zhou#, and X.

PDF Abstract: Over the past decade, biodiversity researchers have dedicated tremendous efforts in constructing DNA reference barcodes for rapid species registration and identification. Alt
