Profile Information

Iranian Fisheries Research Organization(ifro)
Researcher/Faculty member
If Other Title, please specify
Aquatic Genetic Resource Dep.
I’m involved in, or am interested in the following barcoding initiatives
FISH-BOL, Marine Barcode of Life (MarBOL), DNA Barcoding Initiative for Conservation, Database Working Group, Data Analysis Working Group
I’m involved in or interested in the following iBOL Working Groups
WG1.7 Freshwater Bio-Surveillance, WG1.8 Marine Bio-Surveillance, WG2.1 Barcoding Biotas, WG2.2 Museum Life, WG4.1 Environmental Barcoding
Keywords about my barcoding projects (separate each choice with a comma)
DNA Barcoding, Caspian basin, Salmo trutta fario ‎
I’m involved in the following aspects of barcoding:
Fieldwork/specimen collecting, Museum work/specimen curation, Labwork/generating barcode sequences, Management of barcode data, Using barcode data in taxonomy/systematic biology, Using barcode data for other applications, Organizing/managing barcoding projects
Current Project(s)
DNA Barcoding identification of Salmo trutta fraio using Cytochrome Oxidase I (COI) ‎Sequences
One of the main goals of establishing GenBank is providing the beast Preservation of aquatic genetic ‎resources and their biodiversity as national capitals by using biotechnological approaches. Collecting ‎biological samples of different aquatic species, preparation and long term storing, genetic recording ‎of threatened and under extinction species and using biotechnology methods for Conservation, ‎management and survival of aquatic species are other duty of GenBank of aquatic species of Iran. ‎
This valuable and beautiful fish is living in freshwaters of Latyian, Lar and Karaj dams and Gahar ‎Lake as well as upstream rivers of Iran. This fish usually is caught as a fishing sport by hook. Since ‎this fish has the ability to develop aquaculture in Iran, it could be a part of strategic plans of breeding ‎fish to increase fish production. Genetic recourses of this fantastic fish are completely original and it ‎is not happened any genetic manipulation for it. This fish is introduced as a native fish from Iran, in all ‎international scientific recourses, which no genetic research has been done on it, so we were very ‎lucky that it has not submitted through non Iranian people. There is a question that indeed how many ‎species of Salmo trutta fario are living are freshwater rivers of southern Caspian Sea? ‎
To protect this fish from extinction some urgent cases seem necessary:‎
• Identification of all species
• Matching molecular and morphometrical methods for the beast identification
• Defining DNA Barcoding for COI gene to recognition of species
• Definition of Inter- and Intra-species genetic distance to study the phylogenetic relationship
One of the main goals of this project is submitting the genetic information of Salmo trutta fario as a ‎native fish from Islamic republic of Iran in international scientific community. ‎
‎ Key words: DNA Barcoding, Caspian basin, Salmo trutta fario ‎
Since these species are at risk of extinction, it is necessary to identify their genetic markers to ‎protect them from being exported illegally. So the following activity should be done:‎
‎1-‎ Species identification and possible hybrids of the species
‎2-‎ Surveying of phylogenetic relationship between species inland water resources of Iran
‎3-‎ DNA Barcoding and submitting data in GenBank
