DNA barkodlama, biyoçeşitlilik, ekoloji, koruma, taksonomi


Specimen identification by DNA barcoding provides an attractive alternative to morphological examination in large-scale studies and works on cryptic, microscopic, or digested materials. By combining the strengths of molecular biology and bioinformatics, DNA barcoding was aimed at a quick and accurate means to recognize previously known, described, and named species. The appropriate DNA barcode markers applied to specific taxonomic groups of organisms are proving valuable knowledge for understanding species boundaries, community ecology, and the conservation of biodiversity. Specifically, the rapid development of next-generation sequencing technology has great potential to support the versatility of the Life Barcoding.
