Project Database

The Plant Barcode Database keeps track of samples from the field to final barcode sequence. A standard sample template file (Data_Intake_Form_Barcoding_CTFS_Plots.xls) is established for each accession with mandatory and optional fields to be completed at each stage of processing and uploaded to database. All information will be made available in a searchable, online database (currently under development) The Excel template file has four worksheet tabs. The first tab includes instructions, tabs 2-4 have data input requirements. Tissue will not be extracted until the Smithsonian Plant DNA Barcode Group receives all the necessary data.
