Ancient DNA sequences are able to offer valuable insights into molecular evolutionary processes, but are notoriously difficult to analyze due to molecular damage and exogenous dna contamination. Discover the latest research on Ancient DNA here.

Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

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.
