  • Hello, today i will telling you about DNA barcoding.
  • DNA barcoding is a gene technology that focuses on species identification using a specific section of DNA from specific genes. DNA section can be used to classify an species; in the same way as a store scanner uses the familiar black stripes of the UPC barcode to identify the item.  
  • The process for this technology can be broken down into 7 steps.1. Find a unknown species2.Extract its DNA  3. Barcode fragment4. Sequence the DNA5. See the barcode in a database6. Find a match7. Identify the species
  • The benefits of this genetic technology include the re-movement of illegal fish and timber from global markets, slow the spread of invasive pests, reduction of bird plane collisions and uncover hideouts of medically important mosquito species. there are none to very few limitations to this technology.
  • The economical implications for this technology are also cost friendly. The per sample cost are at $5 while plant samples cost about $7.50 per a sample.
  • On a global and political scale DNA barcoding can help us with large scale biodiversity inventories and with the conservation of rare species. While bar coding mosquitoes you can figure out different diseases which can save many lives by figuring out  which mosquitoes carry which diseases. 
  • DNA barcoding has the potential to change modern day science with gradual progression. with all these new technologies there is no limit to science therefore we can progress as we chose.
