• Beyond DNA barcoding: The unrealized potential of genome skim data in sample identification 

      Bohmann, Kristine; Mirarab, Siavash; Bafna, Vineet; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Genetic tools are increasingly used to identify and discriminate between species. One key transition in this process was the recognition of the potential of the ca 658bp fragment of the organelle cytochrome c oxidase I ...
    • DNA-Based Arthropod Diversity Assessment in Amazonian Iron Mine Lands Show Ecological Succession Towards Undisturbed Reference Sites 

      Lynggaard, Christina; Yu, Douglas W.; Oliveira, Guilherme; Caldeira, Cecilio F.; Ramos, Silvio J.; Ellegaard, Martin; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Gastauer, Markus; Bohmann, Kristine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Human activities change natural landscapes, and in doing so endanger biodiversity and associated ecosystem services. To reduce the net impacts of these activities, such as mining, disturbed areas are rehabilitated and ...
    • Mitochondrial genomes of Danish vertebrate species generated for the national DNA reference database, DNAmark 

      Margaryan, Ashot; Noer, Christina Lehmkuhl; Richter, Stine R.; Restrup, Marlene Elise; Bülow-Hansen, Julie Lee; Leerhøi, Frederik; Langkjær, Emilia Marie Rolander; Gopalakrishnan, Shyam; Carøe, Christian; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Bohmann, Kristine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Biodiversity monitoring projects using environmental DNA techniques are becoming increasingly widespread. However, these techniques depend heavily on the quality and richness of the available DNA reference database against ...
    • Molecular dietary analyses of western capercaillies (Tetrao urogallus) reveal a diverse diet 

      Chua, Physilia Y. S.; Lammers, Youri; Menoni, Emmanuel; Ekrem, Torbjørn; Bohmann, Kristine; Boessenkool, Sanne; Alsos, Inger Greve (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Conservation strategies centered around species habitat protection rely on species’ dietary information. One species at the focal point of conservation efforts is the herbivorous grouse, the western capercaillie (Tetrao ...
    • Skmer: assembly-free and alignment-free sample identification using genome skims 

      Sarmashghi, Shahab; Bohmann, Kristine; Gilbert, Marcus Thomas Pius; Bafna, Vineet; Mirarab, Siavash (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The ability to inexpensively describe taxonomic diversity is critical in this era of rapid climate and biodiversity changes. The recent genome-skimming approach extends current barcoding practices beyond short markers by ...
