Title: Tags for Living Beings: The Saga Of DNA Barcode
Authors: Kumar, A. Biju
George, Sanil
Issue Date: Jan-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: In the early 1960s, World War II veteran Gene Roddenberry brought to air a now famous science fiction drama, Star Trek, in which a handheld ‘tricorder’ device was used to scan and identify alien life forms. Though this remains a fancy, today’s researchers are working on a technology called DNA barcoding that envisages an inexpensive handheld device the size of a mobile phone, a DNA barcode scanner, that provides quick identification of every species in the world and that could transform people’s relationship with nature!
