SC 2017 Semilab: DNA Barcoding

by Slava Yurchenko

How do we identify all the living species around us? These days scientists can use short fragments of DNA (so-called barcodes) as unique and individual signatures. In this semilab we will amplify such fragments using Polymerase Chain Reaction and determine their nucleotide composition. We will use these data to investigate the extent of biodiversity around us.
