The 16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) gene has been widely used for the taxonomic classification of bacteria. A molecular signature is a set of nucleotide patterns, which constitute a regular expression that is specific to each particular taxon. Our main goal was to identify discriminating nucleotide patterns in 16S rRNA gene and then to generate signatures for(More)
Glyptapanteles Ashmead (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Microgastrinae) is a cosmopolitan group of hyperdiverse parasitic wasps. The genus remains taxonomically challenging in India due to its highly speciose nature, morphological similarity amongst species and negligible host records. The Indian fauna is one of the most diverse and also the least studied. The(More)
DNA barcoding is widely used and most efficient approach that facilitates rapid and accurate identification of plant species based on the short standardized segment of the genome. The nucleotide sequences of maturaseK (matK) and ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase (rbcL) marker loci are commonly used in plant species identification. Here, we present a(More)
