An app to capture data in the field, describing specimens for biodiversity studies.


The DNABarcodingAssistant is a powerful utility application to capture different forms of specimen metadata during field collections made in connection with large-scale biodiversity initiatives. Although originally developed to support students participating in the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) project, the app is ideally suited for other biodiversity-based citizen science projects.
