Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.


Recent advances in genomic sequencing has led to the discovery of new strains of Archaea and shed light on their evolutionary history. Discover the latest research on Archaeogenetics here.

Evolution of Gene Regulation

The evolution from single-celled to multicellular organisms required precise control of genes and gave cells the ability to be programmed for specific functions. Discover the latest research on Evolution of Gene Regulation here.

Genetic Speciation

Speciation depends on the genetic evolution of reproductive barriers that allow populations to diverge from each other. Discover the latest research on Genetic Speciation here.

Genome Dynamics and Adaptation

Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.

Horizontal Gene Transfer

Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer here.
