Food and feeding Biology of Fish Epinephelus malabaricus of Palk Bay and Gulf of Mannar coastal waters
- The present study addresses this issue by examining the patterning of Cytochrome Oxidase I diversity in the stone fish Uranoscopus oligolepis the structurally diverse group of Family Uranoscopidae. The sequences were analyzed for their species identification using BOLD’s identification engine. The COI sequences of U. oligolepis from different geographical regions were extracted from NCBI for intra species variation analysis. All sequences were aligned using Clustal W. The sequences were trimmed using software and phylogenetic tree was constructed with bootstrap test. The results showed that the cytosine content was high (31%). The least molar concentration was observed in guanine (19.5%) and Adenine (19.6%). Thymine was the second predominant in molar concentration next to thymine which is followed by adenine. The G+C content was found to be 49.6% and A+T content was 50.4%. Leucine and Alanine content was high in the amino acid composition. From the study it is assumed that the mitochondrial gene COI can be the potential barcoding region to identify an organism up to the species level.
