Amid spiralling government interest, world's top 350 DNA barcode scientists meet in Taipei
Date:9/14/2007

an "barcode factories" (at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., USA, and the University of Guelph, Canada) are now able to produce hundreds of thousands of barcodes per year. Meanwhile, a new network of 17 "Leading Labs" has been created to share and disseminate barcoding information and offer training.

Outreach meetings have been organized in southern and eastern Africa, and in South/Central America. CBOL has also worked to build collaboration with marine scientists, evolution and bioinformatics researchers and others.

Barcoding has important connections to major initiatives in biodiversity research. A regular flow of academic papers document the expanding the use of DNA barcodes in taxonomy, ecology, biogeography, and applications such as forensics.

Presenters in Taipei will predict new science and technology that experts expect to see at the 3rd International Barcode Conference, planned for 2009.

Taipei presentation abstracts in the spotlight (please see http://staging.enilsson.com/medres/default for all abstracts):

  • Tom Evans, USA: repairing DNA with chemical cocktails

  • Dan Faith, Australia: using DNA distances for systematic conservation planning;

  • David Lambert, New Zealand: DNA barcoding extinct birds of New Zealand, Sacred Ibis mummies from Egypt;

  • Si-Min Lin, Taiwan: Applying barcodes to improve conservation in the tropical fish trade (e.g. armored catfish);

  • Charlie Chang Liu, Hong Kong: DNA barcoding Chinese medicinal plants;

  • Santiago Madrinan, Colombia: DNA barcoding a large, complex plant group (Lauraceae, Laurels, including cinnamon, avocado, and sassafras);

  • Tadeusz Malewski, Poland: DNA barcoding carrion fly-maggots, police forensics

  • Robert Anderson: extending DNA barcoding into single-celled organism res
