Welcome to the SPInDel project!
SPInDel is a method for species identification in all domains of life using multiplex analysis of variable-length sequences containing multiple insertion/deletion (indel) variants. Each species can be defined by a unique combination of fragment lengths (a ‘SPInDel profile’) that can be interrogated using conventional or high-throughput genotyping platforms without the need for DNA sequencing. SPInDel is appropriate for use in suboptimal samples including the identification of species from mixtures. For more background information click here.
