Overview:
BOLD is a portal database for the acquisition, storage, analysis, and publication of DNA barcode records. It's constructed with four databases;

1) Public Data Portal is a data retrieval interface that allows for searching all 1.3M public records in BOLD using multiple search criteria including geography, taxonomy, and depository. Search results can be summarized, plotted on high-res maps, and downloaded.

2) BIN database is a searchable database of Barcode Index Numbers (BINs), sequence clusters that closely approximate species.

3) Publication is a collection of barcode publications and publications that have utilized barcode records.

4) Primer database is a comprehensive registry of primers used in the generation of barcode sequences.
