Integrative Biology 200A
DNA Barcoding

Resources from DNA Barcoding lecture, Tuesday Feb. 26

Please consider and contrast the viewpoints from:

1. A typical popular article: "Can a single barcode of DNA record biodiversity and keep us safe from poisons?" by Bob Grant

2. Listen to The Scientist's podcast, also availabe as an MP3

3. Pick at least one paper that includes one or more of the authors from each set (you can use Google Scholar to search for Barcode + "Name")

4.Visit Mark Stoeckle's blog for a comparatively rosy perspective on DNA barcoding
