The Public Library of Science (PLoS
) issued the latest in a series of Census of Marine Life volumes, The MarBOL Collection
, on Monday, June 28th. This collection of papers presents research in the field of Marine Barcoding under the auspices of MarBOL.
The MarBOL collection highlights the large variety of applications including identification of prey in gut contents,
detection of invasive species, forensics, and seafood safety. Researchers also used barcodes to delimit species boundaries, reveal cryptic species, and discover new species.
New articles in the field of marine barcoding are most welcome. If you are interested to submit a manuscript please get in touch with the collection owner, Dirk Steinke
