DNA barcodes distinguish species of tropical Lepidoptera.
Although central to much biological research, the identification of species is often difficult. The use of DNA barcodes, short DNA sequences from a standardized region of the genome, has recentlyExpand

A DNA barcode for land plants
DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. ToExpand

Critical factors for assembling a high volume of DNA barcodes
Large-scale DNA barcoding projects are now moving toward activation while the creation of a comprehensive barcode library for eukaryotes will ultimately require the acquisition of some 100 millionExpand

Biological identifications through DNA barcodes: the case of the Crustacea
The ability of a 650 base pair section of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene to provide species-level identifications has been demonstrated for large taxonomic assemblages of animalsExpand

DNA barcoding: how it complements taxonomy, molecular phylogenetics and population genetics.
DNA barcoding aims to provide an efficient method for species-level identifications and, as such, will contribute powerfully to taxonomic and biodiversity research. As the number of DNA barcodeExpand

Multiple Multilocus DNA Barcodes from the Plastid Genome Discriminate Plant Species Equally Well
A universal barcode system for land plants would be a valuable resource, with potential utility in fields as diverse as ecology, floristics, law enforcement and industry. However, the application ofExpand

A universal DNA mini-barcode for biodiversity analysis
BackgroundThe goal of DNA barcoding is to develop a species-specific sequence library for all eukaryotes. A 650 bp fragment of the cytochrome c oxidase 1 (CO1) gene has been used successfully forExpand

A minimalist barcode can identify a specimen whose DNA is degraded
A DNA barcode based on 650 bp of mitochondrial gene cytochrome c oxidase I is proving to be highly functional in species identification for various animal groups. However, DNA degradation complicatesExpand
