DNA Barcoding A New Perspective in Taxonomy:

DNA Barcoding A New Perspective in Taxonomy Pawan Saini 2010-11-153 Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics 5


Contents What is DNA barcoding ? Criteria of a DNA barcode sequence Barcoding regions (Animals & Plants) CBOL and major barcoding projects Case studies Applications Strengths and weaknesses Conclusion 6

DNA Barcoding:

DNA Barcoding DNA barcoding is a technique in which species identification is performed by using DNA sequences from a small fragment of the genome (Mitochondria and Chloroplast) 7 (Hebert et al ., 2003; Kumar and Jain, 2011)

DNA Barcode:

DNA Barcode DNA - four nitrogen bases Adenine = Thymine = Cytosine = Guanine = 8 (Hollingsworth, 2008) Green Red Blue Black

Origin of DNA Barcode:

Origin of DNA Barcode Ribosomal RNA (small subunit 16S RNA of prokaryotes and 18S RNA of eukaryotes) Cytochrome c oxidase 1 ( CO1 gene) 9

Slide 10:

10 Dr. Paul D. N. Hebert Founder of DNA Barcoding

Features of DNA Barcode Gene:

Features of DNA Barcode Gene Low intra-species variability Species level genetic variability and divergence Short sequence length Size of sequence : 600-700 bp Universality 11 (Kumar and Jain, 2011)

Barcoding Region:

Barcoding Region 12 (Kumar and Jain, 2011)

rRNA Genes:

rRNA Genes 13 Carl Woese (1990) Archaea , Bacteria & Eukaryota

Mitochondrial Gene Sequence:

Mitochondrial Gene Sequence 14 Small region of mitochondrial CO1 gene is used in animals for identification. (Hebert et al., 2003)

Identification of Plants :

Identification of Plants Use of the CO1 sequence “is not appropriate for most species of plants” Slower rate of cytochrome c oxidase 1 gene evolution in higher plants than in animals Plastid trnH-psbA intergenic spacer as a potential DNA barcode for flowering plants (Kress et al ., 2005) 15

Chloroplast Genome Sequences:

Chloroplast Genome Sequences 16 CBOL-Plant Working Group: rbcL and matK standard two-locus barcode for plants (Ratnasingham and Hebert, 2007)

CBOL’s Major Project (Source : http://www.barcoding.si.edu ) 21

CBOL-Initiated Projects:

CBOL-Initiated Projects Fish Barcode of Life (FISH-BOL) 30,000 marine/freshwater species by 2010 All Birds Barcoding Initiative (ABBI) 10,000 species by 2010 Tephritid Barcoding Initiative (TBI) 2,000 pest/beneficial species and relatives by 2010 Mosquitoes Barcoding Initiative (MBI) 3,300 species (completed -2009) 22

Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD):

Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD) Aids the collection, management, analysis, and the use of DNA barcodes Repository for the specimen and sequence records Aids the assembly of barcode data and maintains records 23

International Barcode of Life Project (iBOL):

International Barcode of Life Project (iBOL) Activated in October, 2010 Headquarter: Canada First phase: 2010-2015 Acquisition of DNA barcode records of 5 million specimen representing 500,000 species Release each barcode record in two phases Website: http://www.ibolproject.org 24

27 Why Barcoding Life?

Ten Reasons:

Ten Reasons Works with fragments Works for all stages of life Unmasks look-alikes 28

Ten Reasons contd…:

Ten Reasons contd… Reduce ambiguity Makes expertise go further Democratizes access 29 Known Species: >150,000 Flies, Mosquitoes, >250,000 Flowering Plants, >300,000 Beetles, >30,000 Crabs, Lobsters

Weaknesses No universal DNA barcode gene Difficult to resolve recently diverged species Identifies inter-specific genetic variation only Single gene approach 51


Conclusion DNA barcoding has emerged and established itself as an important tool for species-identification and phylogenetic studies. Apart from this, it has proved useful in protecting endangered animals, identifying agricultural pests and disease vectors, tracking adulteration in products and sustaining environment. 52
