DNA barcodes change our view on how nature is structured
Date:1/21/2014

we have done so far is to apply these techniques to one of the simplest food webs on the globe and yet they completely revamped our view on how this very web was structured. Now you can just imagine what will happen when we employ this approach in other settings. We still have no clue of what prior patterns may hold when we revisit them with this more sensitive looking glass."

Her coauthor Paul Hebert, who proposed the DNA barcoding concept a decade ago and now sees it applied to resolving more and more questions in nature, is prepared to take the vision one step further. "I believe that the techniques advanced here are game-changing when it comes to understanding how nature works", says he "In only a few years, the augmentation of this approach may allow us to pick up any bug, and recover DNA sequences from most other organisms which it has ever touched. Now inferring the whole interaction history of an organism, that will allow us to establish the structure of ecological interactions with a precision previously unconceived!"
