Barcode of Life Data System
The Barcode of Life Data System (commonly known as BOLD or BOLDSystems) is a sequence database specifically devoted to DNA barcoding. It also provides an online platform for analyzing DNA sequences. As of 2017[update], BOLD included over 5.9 million DNA barcode sequences from over 542,000 species.
