IDENTIFICATION OF PLANKTON IN SEAWEED CULTIVATION AREA DISTRICT BANTAENG, SOUTH SULAWESI WITH DNA BARCODING METHOD
DNA barcoding is a method that can be used to identify the plankton by looking at their genetic material. DNA barcoding performed with several stages, i.e. extraction, amplification, purification, and sequencing. The sample used was taken in July 2017 and December 2017 from the area of cultivation of seaweed Bantaeng District, South Sulawesi. This study aims to identify the plankton of the area of seaweed farming in Bantaeng District, South Sulawesi with the method of DNA barcoding using the primer 18S rDNA. The results showed that the plankton identified is the zooplankton, Pegurus bernhardus, Canthocalanus pauper, Calanus finmarchicus, dan Copepoda at station B, Acartia longiremis and Subeucalanus pileatus at stations C, and Oithona sp. at stations D and E.
