Ever since Paul Hebert and co-workers  proposed DNA barcoding as a method of identifying species, systematic biologists have used this method to resolve fine-scale taxonomic status of different species, diversity within a species and classification using DNA sequence analyses and phylogenetic link.

For some years, concerns have been raised about the blindness towards men in HIV and antiretroviral therapy (ART) services in Africa(1-12).
Objectives To evaluate antibacterial use among patients presenting to primary health care facilities with febrile illness in Zambia.
Objective To assess the prevalence and serotype distribution of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) in Ghana since colonization of pregnant women can lead to subsequent infection of the newborn and potentially fatal invasive disease and this knowledge is a prerequisite for future evaluation of vaccine trials.
Objective To describe the blood feeding behavior of mosquitoes in Mexico, in order to understand host–vector relationships and dynamics of disease transmission.
Objective In low and middle-income countries (LMICs), siblings’ survival histories (SSH) are often used to estimate maternal mortality, but SSH data on causes of death at reproductive ages have seldom been validated.
Objective Diagnosis of tuberculous lymphadenitis using fine needle aspiration cytology is a simple and safe but low-specificity method, whereas conventional smear microscopy has variable sensitivity due to low bacterial load.
Objectives To analyse the trend of loss to follow up over time and identify factors associated with women being lost to follow up after discharge in three fistula repair hospitals in Guinea.
Objectives To determine antibiotic susceptibility of colonizing pneumococcal serotypes in HIV-exposed infants before the introduction of the 13-valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV13), because HIV-exposed infants are at increased risk for invasive pneumococcal infections.
Objective To establish common biochemistry reference intervals for Tanzanian infants, children, and adolescents living in the Kilimanjaro Region.
Objective The prevalence of MDR-TB in Zambia was estimated to be 1.8% in 2001.
Objectives Maternal infections are associated with intra-uterine growth restriction and preterm birth.
