CodonCode Aligner User Showcases
See how other researchers are using CodonCode Aligner. The user showcases below show different applications of CodonCode Aligner in multiple research areas. CodonCode Aligner users describe their research and explain how they use CodonCode Aligner to achieve their goals.
Professor Jack Pettigrew and his research group use CodonCode Aligner to date ancient rock art from Australia. Recent discovery shows that the Bradshaw rock art is covered with a biofilm containing different microorganisms which is closely linked to the paintings. They hope to use the evoultionary information contained in these microorgansims to date the paintings whose age is currently unkown.
An example how CodonCode Aligner is used to analyze barcoding sequence data of economically important insect species from Pakistan in a collaborative project between the National Institute for Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering in Pakistan and the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario in Canada.
This user showcase about population and conservation genetics of the Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus) shows how mitochondrial and nuclear markers are used to assess the genetic variation and gene flow in roadrunners.
A research case about different aspects of evolution, speciation and mutation of the European Corn Borer (ECB). The research focuses on the post-diapause development time of the ECB and its connection to the gene flow between populations, as well as the temporal isolation and its link to its genetic locus.
This user showcase looks at the dynamics, conservation, distribution and evolution of repetitive DNA elements in the electric knife fish Eigenmannia with the help of CodonCode Aligner.
A research example that usesCodonCode Aligner to study the ancient precursors of American food plants. Projects include analyzing ancient DNA of the prehistoric eastern North American Chenopod (Chenopodium sp.) to determine its domestication, and studying the phylogeography of the bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) and its arrival in the New World.
