rbold: An R Interface for Bold Systems barcode repository

June 28, 2011

(This article was first published on Recology, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Have you ever wanted to search and fetch barcode data from Bold Systems?

I am developing functions to interface with Bold from R. I just started, but hopefully folks will find it useful.

The code is at Github here. The two functions are still very buggy, so please bring up issues below, or in the Issues area on Github. For example, some searches work and other similar searches don’t. Apologies in advance for the bugs.

Below is a screenshot of an example query using function getsampleids to get barcode identifiers for specimens. You can then use getseqs function to grab barcode data for specific specimens or many specimens.
