T he goal of DNA barcoding is conceptually simple: Find one or a few regions of DNA that will distinguish among the majority of the world’s species, and sequence these from diverse sample sets to produce a large-scale reference library of life on earth (1). This approach can then be used as a tool for species identification and to help in the discovery of new species (2). Since the first DNA barcoding study in 2003 (1), the “animal barcode,” a portion of the mitochondrial gene Cytochrome… CONTINUE READING
