The resulting sequences were queried against the Barcode of Life Data System, an informatics workbench facilitating the acquisition, storage, analysis and publication of DNA barcode records, and other genetic sequence databases for species identification.
It means a tiny fragment of pollen, leaf or root is all that's needed to identify a plant which has its DNA barcode in the library.
Given the ecological importance of the Boulder Patch and its value for assessing shifts in benthic species composition and distribution, we sought to DNA barcode some of the flora reported by Wilce and Dunton (2014; DNA barcoding: Hebert et al., 2003; Saunders, 2005).
He recommended the use of a partial region of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase, which is made up of approximately 650 bp for animal identification as the region is sufficient enough to generate the DNA barcode. The mitochondrial region is suitable for DNA barcode as it fulfilled the basic criteria necessary for species identification.
