Join DNA specialists Sarah Luttrell and Faridah Dahlan to learn how scientists work through the Smithsonian’s Laboratories of Analytical Biology (LAB) to use “DNA barcoding” for species identification.  Follow along as Sarah describes the basics of DNA barcoding and how this unique marker has changed the way basic species identifications are conducted in the daily duties in the Feather Identification Lab to help improve aviation safety.

Sarah and Faridah will also share a real protocol you can follow at home to extract DNA in your kitchen, no laboratory or special equipment required.
