MZGdb News and Updates

  • The MetaZooGene/MZGdb Review Paper is available for free, online.   [click here]

  • The MZGdb Multi-Barcode Database is now online!

    This expanded version of the initial "COI-only" MZGdb
    now includes COI, 12S, 16S, 18S, and 28S data.

    At this time, the expanded MZGdb is not available in the
    WGIMT option. (The WGIMT version is currently COI-only.)

  • As this is a major database upgrade, please be cautious
    and report any errors or issues to:   todd.obrien@noaa.gov
