Summary:

This accession consists of 6 websites maintained by the Consortium for the Barcode of Life, an international initiative devoted to developing DNA barcoding as a global standard for the identification of biological species since 2004. The Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL) website, crawled September 30, 2014, had been previously discontinued. At the time of the crawl, it consisted of a single page with links to portions of the "Barcode of Life: Identifying Species with DNA Barcoding" website where the content from the CBOL website was relocated. The Consortium for the Barcode of Life Secretariat operates from the National Museum of Natural History. The "Barcode of Life: Identifying Species with DNA Barcoding" website, crawled September 30, 2014, provides information for and about the DNA barcoding community, including events, publications, and other resources. It also includes information about CBOL and the International Barcode of Life project (iBOL), the largest biodiversity genomics initiative ever undertaken. "Barcode of Life: Connect," crawled September 30, 2014, is a community space that includes discussion forums and blog posts. This accession may not include all public content and does not include password-protected content. The "e-Biosphere '09 Post-Conference Website" includes information about the International Conference on Biodiversity Informatics, held June 1-3, 2009, and its components as well as the results of various discussions and challenges that occurred. It also includes conference documents such as abstracts, programs, brochures, and announcements. The website was crawled September 24, 2014. The "Third International Barcode of Life Conference" website, crawled September 24, 2014, provides information about the conference held November 7-13, 2009. It includes information about the conference, including the schedule, abstracts, and program. Due to technical issues, this accession does not include the posters presented at the conference. The "Fourth International Barcode of Life Conference" website, crawled September 29, 2014, provides information about the conference held November 28-December 3, 2011. It includes information about the conference, including the agenda, program, and promotional poster. Materials are in electronic format.
