Trio of recent papers investigate genomic identification tools

Three recent papers co-authored by Biomonitoring 2.0 team members Terri Porter and Brian Golding give details of their research findings. Links to the original papers are provided below. The Golding lab at McMaster Univeristy, Hamilton Ontario is currently investigating DNA sequence identification and evolution using new bioinformatic approaches as a part of the Bioinformatics sphere of the Biomonitoring 2.0 project.
