DNA barcoding of crustaceans across Canada’s oceans

I am interested in using molecular tools to study marine biodiversity at the species and genetic levels, mainly the genetic diversity and structure at various spatial scales.

Marine Biodiversity, MB-04: Biodiversity and Gene Flow in Crustaceans

adriana.radulovici@uqar.qc.ca

I am using DNA barcoding to assign molecular identification tags to various crustacean species and to detect cryptic species (i.e., morphologically identical, genetically divergent) across Canada’s oceans. Besides building a reference library of DNA barcodes, data are used in phylogeographic and phylogenetic analyses of selected crustacean species.

The goals of this project:

    • Molecular inventory of Arctic crustaceans (decapods and amphipods)
    • Assessment of the level of cryptic speciation
    • Investigation of evolutionary patterns in crustaceans in relation to the Arctic

This project is included in Theme 1 (Marine Biodiversity) and it will add to the general body of information resulting from CHONe, with regards to patterns of diversity across taxonomic levels and spatial and temporal scales.
