DNA barcoding Australia's fish species
TLDR
It is concluded that cox1 sequencing, or ‘barcoding’, can be used to identify fish species. Expand
Critical factors for assembling a high volume of DNA barcodes
TLDR
The prospects for establishing high volume DNA barcoding facilities by evaluating key steps in the analytical chain from specimens to barcodes are discussed, with a focus on alliances with members of the taxonomic community. Expand
The campaign to DNA barcode all fishes, FISH-BOL.
TLDR
Analysis is targeting a 648 base pair region of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene, targeting several specimens with divergent barcode sequences confirmed by integrative taxonomic analysis as new species. Expand
Identifying spiders through DNA barcodes
TLDR
This study demonstrates that sequence diversity in a standard segment of the mitochondrial gene coding for cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) is highly effective in discriminating spider species and establishes the potential of COI as a rapid and accurate identification tool for biodiversity surveys of spiders. Expand
Prospects for fungus identification using CO1 DNA barcodes, with Penicillium as a test case
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of sequence divergences in this gene region for 38 fungal taxa with full CO1 sequences suggested that CO1 could be effective in species recognition, and designed primers for a 545-bp fragment of CO1 and generated sequences for multiple strains from 58 species of Penicillium subgenus Penicilla and 12 allied species.

Identifying Canadian mosquito species through DNA barcodes
TLDR
A short fragment of mt DNA from the cytochrome c oxidase 1 (CO1) region was used to provide the first CO1 barcodes for 37 species of Canadian mosquitoes from the provinces Ontario and New Brunswick, and sequence variation was analysed. Expand
DNA barcoding Indian marine fishes
TLDR
In addition to barcode‐based species identification system, phylogenetic relationships among the species have also been attempted and the neighbour‐joining tree revealed distinct clusters in concurrence with the taxonomic status of the species. Expand
Species identification of aphids (Insecta: Hemiptera: Aphididae) through DNA barcodes
TLDR
Most species tested were well differentiated, and sequence variation within species was low, averaging just 0.2%. Expand
A Tri-Oceanic Perspective: DNA Barcoding Reveals Geographic Structure and Cryptic Diversity in Canadian Polychaetes
TLDR
The consistent geographic structuring within presumed widespread species suggests that historical range fragmentation during the Pleistocene ultimately increased Canadian polychaete diversity and that the coastal British Columbia fauna played a minor role in Arctic recolonization following deglaciation. Expand
DNA barcoding reveals extraordinary cryptic diversity in an amphipod genus: implications for desert spring conservation
TLDR
This study employed DNA barcoding to examine Hyalella, a taxonomically difficult genus of amphipod crustaceans from sites in the southern Great Basin of California and Nevada, USA, and revealed extraordinary levels of cryptic diversity and endemism. Expand
