Species-specific Genetic Barcodes: Life Tech’s Capillary Electrophoresis Sequencers generated by

Reporter: Aviva Lev-Ari, PhD, RN

Life Tech said that it has also partnered with the Canadian Centre for DNA Barcoding for the iBOL project, a biodiversity study that aims to genetically catalog 500,000 species by late 2015 and 5 million in total.

Project researchers will use Life Tech’s capillary electrophoresis sequencers to generate species-specific genetic barcodes, which will be deposited in a reference library called Barcode of Life Data System. The partnership will focus on a project to study insects around the world and another one to study biodiversity patterns in Central and South America.

In addition, Life Tech and the center will work on developing metagenomic barcoding applications using the PGM sequencer.
