A rapid protocol for generating arthropod DNA barcodes suitable for use with undergraduate students
MetadataShow full item record
We provide a protocol for rapid DNA extraction from spiders suitable for undergraduate practical sessions. Students who were previously naïve to the theory and laboratory technique of DNA barcoding were successfully able to extract and recover 29 DNA sequences from 16 species of small spiders in the family Linyphiidae. We anticipate that with careful selection of specimens, undergraduate students could participate in sessions which both benefit their professional development and further taxonomic understanding across a variety of organisms.
