Automated simultaneous analysis phylogenetics (ASAP) : an enabling tool for phlyogenomics
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-19)
The availability of sequences from whole genomes to reconstruct the tree of life has the potential to enable the development of phylogenomic hypotheses in ways that have not been before possible. A significant bottleneck ...
Exploring historical trends using taxonomic name metadata
(BioMed Central, 2008-05-13)
Authority and year information have been attached to taxonomic names since Linnaean times. The systematic structure of taxonomic nomenclature facilitates the ability to develop tools that can be used to explore historical ...
Character-based DNA barcoding allows discrimination of genera, species and populations in Odonata
(Royal Society, 2007-11-08)
DNA barcoding has become a promising means for identifying organisms of all life stages. Currently, phenetic approaches and tree-building methods have been used to define species boundaries and discover 'cryptic species'. ...
Taxonomic informatics tools for the electronic nomenclator zoologicus
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-02)
Given the current trends, it seems inevitable that all biological documents will eventually exist in a digital format and be distributed across the internet. New network services and tools need to be developed to increase ...
Taxonomic indexing—extending the role of taxonomy
(Taylor & Francis, 2006-06)
Taxonomic indexing refers to a new array of taxonomically intelligent network services that use nomenclatural principles and elements of expert taxonomic knowledge to manage information about organisms. Taxonomic indexing ...
SCOR/IODE/MBLWHOI Library collaboration on data publication [poster]
This poster describes the development of international standards to publish oceanographic datasets. Research areas include the assignment of persistent identifiers, tracking provenance, linking datasets to publications, ...
Biodiversity informatics : organizing and linking information across the spectrum of life
Biological knowledge can be inferred from three major levels of information: molecules, organisms, and ecologies. Bioinformatics is an established field that has made significant advances in the development of systems and ...
CAOS software for use in character-based DNA barcoding
The success of character based DNA barcoding depends on the efficient identification of diagnostic character states from molecular sequences that have been organized hierarchically (e.g., according to phylogenetic methods). ...
