Our goal is to obtain DNA barcode data for all species in Switzerland. At the present time we are focusing our efforts on barcoding selected groups of organisms. The progress we have made so far, as well as access to all published data, is found below.


     There are over 3000 species of plants found in Switzerland. Thus far, SwissBOL has sequenced two barcode loci (rbcL and matK) for 145 specimens representing 140 species. In combination with data already available on BOLD Systems, DNA barcodes have been generated for approximately 7% of Swiss plant species.
