ABOL (Austrian Barcode of Life) Coordination
Wien | Website
The ABOL data base serves several functions:
1. as a work data base for project partners - data can be saved safely during the data generation phase - the partners are also supported in the submission process to the international data platform BOLD.
2. as a data provider for data base partners: ABOL passes on biodiversity data to partners - imainly to BOLD, but also to GBIF, ZoBoDat and the Biodiversity Atlas Austria, but also to local data bases of protected areas etc.
3. as a place of quality Control, before the data is made available to everyone (especially in BOLD)
Data provider for numerous open access data bases. The most important of these is BOLD (http://v4.boldsystems.org/), the international DNA barcoding platform, which serves as a kind of "digital, genetic identification key" for plants, animals and fungi.
