Downloading Public Data

BOLD Systems provides the option to download public data from the search results page. Several download options and file formats are available.

In the BIN Database and the Public Data Portal, users can choose to download specimen data (in XML or TSV formats), sequences (in FASTA format), trace files (in either .ab1 or .scf formats), or both specimen details and sequences (in XML or TSV formats). In addition, occurrence maps of specimens, species, or barcodes are also available for download in these databases. To download data for all the records returned, simply click on the download option desired. To choose a selection of records, use the checkboxes to the left of each record.

Primer details and bibliographies can also be downloaded from the Primer Database and the Publication Database, respectively.
