The use of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene to identify and discriminate spider species of eThekwini region.
DNA barcoding compliments traditional morphology-based taxonomic approaches and is a molecular-based method for rapid species identification and flagging of potential new species. A fragment of 658-bp of the mitochondrial ...
Testing the utility of DNA barcoding in South African Hemiptera : using eThekwini species as a case study.
The eThekwini municipal region and surrounding areas (Durban, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa) are situated within the globally important Maputaland-Pondoland-Albany biodiversity hotspot. The biodiversity present in this region ...
Methylation profiling and validation of candidate tDMRs for identification of human blood, saliva, semen and vaginal fluid and its application in forensics.
Identification of body fluids and tissues is an essential step in forensic investigation because it can be used as strong evidence in identifying suspects and victims. Currently in forensic investigations, catalytic, ...
Population genetic diversity of Fasciola spp. from Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal provinces of South Africa.
Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica have been identified as the species causing fascioliasis in ruminants and humans with intermediate species being reported as well. Studies have shown an economic loss in excess of ...
Investigating floral choice in bees (megachilidae) using pollen metabarcoding.
Interactions between plants and their pollinators are often poorly understood, specifically in a species-diverse country such as South Africa. Traditional methods of studying plant-pollinator interactions are time-consuming ...
