Indian scientists peeved over Canadian scientist's "credit grab"


Update 12 Feb Another article from India.Throws around words like plagerism. Not sure how much of their anger is justifiable, and how much is just whining.


Well, this is interesting. I have no idea what to make of it, but it's interesting.

The concept that the CCMB scientists exploited for species identification is also the basis of ‘DNA Barcoding’ developed by Paul Hebert, a zoologist in the University of Guelph in Canada and published in 2003 — two years after the CCMB group filed for patent.

The dispute now is who should be rightfully credited for work done using this concept.
