Diversity studies in Indian earthworms using DNA barcodes

22 Aug 2013

This collaborative project between TERI, New Delhi and Dr. HS Gour Central University, Madhya Pradesh aims to study the diversity of earthworms in different agro-climatic zones of India through DNA barcoding.
The overall objectives of this project are to:

Survey, collection, Identification and digital cataloging of earthworms species from different agro-climatic zones of India;

Molecular identification of the earthworms using COI gene marker and development of DNA library database;

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of earthworms for the agro-climatic zone investigated;

Offer advice and education in earthworms identification and DNA barcoding to students and professional biologists.
