Barcode of life and "universal" PCR primers

An article about using a set of primers for sequencing a small region of the cytochrom c oxidase (CO1) gene. These primers allow us to amplify a smaller region of CO1 than is typically used, but they work across a range of species while still allowing for species identification.

The article is available as free full-text.
