This is an evolving protocol that will be updated regularly. Comments are welcome.

Purpose. The purpose of this protocol is to encourage investigators working with the
Census of Marine Life to determine DNA barcodes of collected specimens. DNA
barcoding of CoML specimens will provide immediately useful results and will have
long-term applications for CoML investigators and the general scientific community.

Background and Rationale. DNA sequence analysis of a uniform target gene to enable
species identification has been referred to as DNA barcoding, by analogy with the UPC
bar codes used to identify manufactured goods (1). A remarkably short DNA sequence
should contain more than enough information to distinguish 10 or even 100 million
species. For example, a 600-nucleotide segment of a protein-coding gene contains 200
codon third nucleotide positions. At these sites, substitutions are (usually) selectively
neutral and mutations accumulate through random drift. Even assuming that a group of
organisms is completely biased to AT or GC at third nucleotide positions, there are then
2 possible bases at 200 positions, or 2 200 = 10 60 possible sequences based on third
nucleotide positions alone. Proof of principle for DNA barcoding has been provided by
comparison of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences among
closely related species and across diverse phyla in the animal kingdom (2).

DNA barcoding has the potential to be a practical method for identification of the
estimated 10 million species of eukaryotic life on earth. As a uniform method for species
identification, DNA barcoding will have broad scientific applications. It will be of great
utility in conservation biology, including biodiversity surveys. It could also be
applied where traditional methods are unrevealing, for instance identification of eggs
and immature forms, and analysis of stomach contents or excreta to determine food
webs. In addition to enabling species identification, DNA barcoding will aid phylogenetic
analysis and help reveal the evolutionary history of life on earth.

An appropriate target gene for DNA barcoding is conserved enough to be amplified with
broad-range primers and divergent enough to allow species discrimination. The initial
target for DNA barcoding described in this protocol is mitochondrial cytochrome c
oxidase subunit I (COI). Selection of an appropriate gene is a critical strategic and
practical decision, with significant consequences for the overall success of this project.
A number of genes may be likely to meet one or more of our goals (discrimination and
identification of species, discovery of new and cryptic species, reconstruction of
evolutionary relationships among species and higher taxa). Our selection of COI as a
target gene is supported by published and ongoing work, which demonstrates that
barcoding via COI will meet the project goals for a wide diversity of animal taxa (1-3).
Limitations. An important outcome of this project will be to identify the groups in which
alternate targets are needed and to define what those targets should be. Cnidarians
(sea anemones, corals, and some jellyfish) for example, have little mitochondrial
sequence diversity, perhaps due to a supplemental mitochondrial DNA repair system,
and a nuclear gene target will likely be needed. Recently diverged species and species
that have arisen through hybridization may not be resolved by COI sequencing.
Information regarding the success or lack thereof of COI barcoding is welcome and will
be incorporated into this site.

This protocol addresses DNA barcoding of animal species. Alternate targets or
protocols will likely be needed for DNA barcoding of other eukaryotes. Plants have too
little mitochondrial sequence diversity, probably due to hybridization and introgression
(potential targets include matK, a chloroplast gene, and ITS (internal transcribed
spacer), a nuclear gene). The mitochondrial DNA of fungi contains introns, which can
complicate DNA amplification (this could be circumvented by applying RT-PCR). For
protists, the utility of COI sequencing has not been explored in depth.

Methods. The essential points are 1) specimen preservation in 95% ethanol (not
formalin) to facilitate DNA isolation, 2) amplification and sequencing of uniform target
gene(s), and 3) databasing of DNA sequences linked to specimens including ancillary
data. We welcome information regarding useful techniques (e.g. ZooGene protocol for
zooplankton) (3).

1. Specimen Preservation. To allow DNA isolation, 95% ethanol should be used—DNA
is difficult to extract from formalin-preserved specimens. The ethanol should generally
be poured off and replaced with new 95% ethanol within a few days of collection to
optimize DNA preservation.

DNA has been successfully extracted from formalin-preserved tissue, including relatively
ancient samples and these techniques may be important in examining previously
archived specimens (4,5).

2. Specimen labeling. The usefulness of DNA barcoding depends on linking the
sequence to a specimen and its associated data (collector, taxonomic confirmation,
date, georeference coordinates, etc.).

3. DNA isolation. In addition to standard methods, there are commercial kits (e.g.
Sigma-Aldrich product number GDI-3) that are inexpensive and have high success in
recovering DNA.

4. Gene target(s). The initial target sequence is the 5’ segment of COI, as described
below.

Barcoding Basic: Mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I, 5’ segment (COI-5’).
Broad range primers are available that will amplify an approximately 700-bp segment
from diverse invertebrates (including Annelida, Arthropoda, Coelenterata,
Echinodermata, Echiura, Mollusca, Nemertina, Platyhelminthes, Pogonophora,
Sipuncula, and Tardigrada) (6):

      5’ primer (5’-ggtcaacaaatcataaagatattgg-3’)
      3’ primer (5’-taaacttcagggtgaccaaaaaatca-3’)
These primers will also amplify COI-5’ from some chordates. Additional primers, with
broad application for chordates and GC-rich species, are under evaluation and will be
added to this site.

If COI-5’ is not sufficient for species discrimination, other rapidly evolving gene(s) may
need to be analyzed as potential barcoding targets. Possible supplementary sequences
include the complete COI gene, other mitochondrial genes (e.g. 16S rRNA, cytochrome
b), and/or ITS (internal transcribed spacer), which is a nuclear gene located between
rRNA genes.

Barcoding Elective I: Small subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA). SSU rRNA,
also referred to as 18s rRNA, is a slowly evolving gene useful for deeper phylogenetic
analysis. In addition to the analysis of COI-5’, we encourage CoML investigators to
determine SSU rRNA sequences from specimens. SSU rRNA is the basis for the Tree of
Life and other comprehensive examinations of evolution of life. The following primers
will amplify SSU rRNA (approximately 1800 bp) from most eukaryotes (7):

      5’ primer (5’-aacctggttgatcctgccagt-3’)
      3’ primer- (5’tgatccttctgcaggttcacctac-3’)

5. Databasing results. CoML Barcode sequences should be submitted to GenBank. We
encourage investigators to post results to the Ocean Biogeographic Information System
(OBIS), including a link on OBIS species pages to the relevant sequence deposited in
GenBank. In addition, a Barcode of Life database will soon be launched under the
auspices of the Hebert laboratory that integrates sequence data with taxonomic and
specimen information.

Dn abarcode

  • 1. Home—Background and Rationale—Methods—References and Resources-- Acknowledgements--Contact Census of Marine Life DNA Barcoding Protocol This paper: http://phe.rockefeller.edu/PDF_FILES/DNAbarcode.pdf CoML URL: http://www.coml.org This is an evolving protocol that will be updated regularly. Comments are welcome. Purpose. The purpose of this protocol is to encourage investigators working with the Census of Marine Life to determine DNA barcodes of collected specimens. DNA barcoding of CoML specimens will provide immediately useful results and will have long-term applications for CoML investigators and the general scientific community. Background and Rationale. DNA sequence analysis of a uniform target gene to enable species identification has been referred to as DNA barcoding, by analogy with the UPC bar codes used to identify manufactured goods (1). A remarkably short DNA sequence should contain more than enough information to distinguish 10 or even 100 million species. For example, a 600-nucleotide segment of a protein-coding gene contains 200 codon third nucleotide positions. At these sites, substitutions are (usually) selectively neutral and mutations accumulate through random drift. Even assuming that a group of organisms is completely biased to AT or GC at third nucleotide positions, there are then 2 possible bases at 200 positions, or 2 200 = 10 60 possible sequences based on third nucleotide positions alone. Proof of principle for DNA barcoding has been provided by comparison of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences among closely related species and across diverse phyla in the animal kingdom (2). DNA barcoding has the potential to be a practical method for identification of the estimated 10 million species of eukaryotic life on earth. As a uniform method for species identification, DNA barcoding will have broad scientific applications. It will be of great utility in conservation biology, including biodiversity surveys. It could also be applied where traditional methods are unrevealing, for instance identification of eggs and immature forms, and analysis of stomach contents or excreta to determine food webs. In addition to enabling species identification, DNA barcoding will aid phylogenetic analysis and help reveal the evolutionary history of life on earth. An appropriate target gene for DNA barcoding is conserved enough to be amplified with broad-range primers and divergent enough to allow species discrimination. The initial target for DNA barcoding described in this protocol is mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI). Selection of an appropriate gene is a critical strategic and practical decision, with significant consequences for the overall success of this project. A number of genes may be likely to meet one or more of our goals (discrimination and identification of species, discovery of new and cryptic species, reconstruction of evolutionary relationships among species and higher taxa). Our selection of COI as a target gene is supported by published and ongoing work, which demonstrates that barcoding via COI will meet the project goals for a wide diversity of animal taxa (1-3).
  • 2. Limitations. An important outcome of this project will be to identify the groups in which alternate targets are needed and to define what those targets should be. Cnidarians (sea anemones, corals, and some jellyfish) for example, have little mitochondrial sequence diversity, perhaps due to a supplemental mitochondrial DNA repair system, and a nuclear gene target will likely be needed. Recently diverged species and species that have arisen through hybridization may not be resolved by COI sequencing. Information regarding the success or lack thereof of COI barcoding is welcome and will be incorporated into this site. This protocol addresses DNA barcoding of animal species. Alternate targets or protocols will likely be needed for DNA barcoding of other eukaryotes. Plants have too little mitochondrial sequence diversity, probably due to hybridization and introgression (potential targets include matK, a chloroplast gene, and ITS (internal transcribed spacer), a nuclear gene). The mitochondrial DNA of fungi contains introns, which can complicate DNA amplification (this could be circumvented by applying RT-PCR). For protists, the utility of COI sequencing has not been explored in depth. Methods. The essential points are 1) specimen preservation in 95% ethanol (not formalin) to facilitate DNA isolation, 2) amplification and sequencing of uniform target gene(s), and 3) databasing of DNA sequences linked to specimens including ancillary data. We welcome information regarding useful techniques (e.g. ZooGene protocol for zooplankton) (3). 1. Specimen Preservation. To allow DNA isolation, 95% ethanol should be used—DNA is difficult to extract from formalin-preserved specimens. The ethanol should generally be poured off and replaced with new 95% ethanol within a few days of collection to optimize DNA preservation. DNA has been successfully extracted from formalin-preserved tissue, including relatively ancient samples and these techniques may be important in examining previously archived specimens (4,5). 2. Specimen labeling. The usefulness of DNA barcoding depends on linking the sequence to a specimen and its associated data (collector, taxonomic confirmation, date, georeference coordinates, etc.). 3. DNA isolation. In addition to standard methods, there are commercial kits (e.g. Sigma-Aldrich product number GDI-3) that are inexpensive and have high success in recovering DNA. 4. Gene target(s). The initial target sequence is the 5’ segment of COI, as described below. Barcoding Basic: Mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I, 5’ segment (COI-5’). Broad range primers are available that will amplify an approximately 700-bp segment from diverse invertebrates (including Annelida, Arthropoda, Coelenterata, Echinodermata, Echiura, Mollusca, Nemertina, Platyhelminthes, Pogonophora, Sipuncula, and Tardigrada) (6): 5’ primer (5’-ggtcaacaaatcataaagatattgg-3’) 3’ primer (5’-taaacttcagggtgaccaaaaaatca-3’)
  • 3. These primers will also amplify COI-5’ from some chordates. Additional primers, with broad application for chordates and GC-rich species, are under evaluation and will be added to this site. If COI-5’ is not sufficient for species discrimination, other rapidly evolving gene(s) may need to be analyzed as potential barcoding targets. Possible supplementary sequences include the complete COI gene, other mitochondrial genes (e.g. 16S rRNA, cytochrome b), and/or ITS (internal transcribed spacer), which is a nuclear gene located between rRNA genes. Barcoding Elective I: Small subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA). SSU rRNA, also referred to as 18s rRNA, is a slowly evolving gene useful for deeper phylogenetic analysis. In addition to the analysis of COI-5’, we encourage CoML investigators to determine SSU rRNA sequences from specimens. SSU rRNA is the basis for the Tree of Life and other comprehensive examinations of evolution of life. The following primers will amplify SSU rRNA (approximately 1800 bp) from most eukaryotes (7): 5’ primer (5’-aacctggttgatcctgccagt-3’) 3’ primer- (5’tgatccttctgcaggttcacctac-3’) 5. Databasing results. CoML Barcode sequences should be submitted to GenBank. We encourage investigators to post results to the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS), including a link on OBIS species pages to the relevant sequence deposited in GenBank. In addition, a Barcode of Life database will soon be launched under the auspices of the Hebert laboratory that integrates sequence data with taxonomic and specimen information. References 1.
