DNA barcoding Marine Yeast- DBYR

Posted on November 27, 2013 at 6:03am 2 Comments

Hi every one.

Is anyone working on Barcoding marine yeast? Since I believe very little work is been done with marine yeast, I have started sequencing marine yeast species collected around Indian waters. This is self funded work. I also look for collaboration and joint publications if any are willing. 

So far I have collected 27 genera from Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. Looking forward to produce at least 200 barcodes. Planned to increase the number of barcodes based on…
