Description 
Summary

The IMS-METU DNA barcodes dataset contains data on sequences of barcode genes (COI, ITS, RbcL and MatK) of mainly marine organisms from the Eastern Mediterranean, Aegean, Marmara and Black Sea and some other regions of the World Ocean. The DNA barcode data are supplemented with pictures of samples and sampling details. The DNA barcode data are periodically deposited to the Barcode of Life Data Systems BOLD (http://www.boldsystems.org/). BOLD is a web platform that provides an integrated environment for the assembly and use of DNA barcode data. It delivers an online database for the collection and management of specimen, distributional, and molecular data as well as analytical tools to support their validation. Since its launch in 2005, BOLD has been extended to provide a range of functionality including data organisation, validation, visualisation and publication. BOLD shares a tightly integrated data exchange pipeline with NCBI (GenBank). GenBank puts a default 1-year privacy period on records submitted through BOLD, where the records are deposited in GenBank but are still inaccessible to the public. This privacy period allows BOLD users to gain accessions early in the manuscript writing process and removes the need for rushing to gain accessions once the manuscript is in its final stages of acceptance by a journal. Then the data will be freely available. (http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/resources/handbook?chapter=6_managingdata.html§ion=publication).
