Use of Noncoding Plastid Marker trnL-F as DNA Barcode for Identification of True Mangrove Genus Rhizophora

Authors(2) :-S. Surya, N. Hari

DNA barcoding should provide rapid, accurate identifications by using a standardized DNA region. The ability to discriminate all species is the ultimate target in barcoding. The barcoding method has been extremely useful in species identification, cryptic species identification, biodiversity studies, forensic analysis and phylogenetics. Application of DNA barcoding to plants has primarily focused on evaluating the success of candidate barcodes across a broad spectrum of evolutionary divergence. In addition to accurately identifying query sequences, results showed that DNA barcoding is useful for detecting taxonomic uncertainty, determining whether erroneous taxonomy. The magnitude of differentiation within and among the Rhizophora species sampled suggests that our results inform how DNA barcoding will perform among closely related species in genera.
