The WGIMT/MZGdb Atlas & Database

The ICES WGIMT North Atlantic Atlas & Database is a collaboratively developed product between WGIMT, MetaZooGene (SCOR WG157), and NOAA COPEPOD.

This Atlas summarizes the geographic distribution and barcoding status of marine invertebrate and vertebrate species in the ICES North Atlantic sub-region, the Baltic Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea.

With species lists divided into major taxonomic groups (e.g., "copepods" or "ctenophores"), this tool provides a simple overview of what species are commonly found in each region and which species have barcodes publicly available in GenBank/BOLD.   This information can then be used to focus further barcoding efforts (e.g., "Species of Genus X have all been barcoded, but not those of Genus Y" or "Species of Genus X have been barcoded in the Mediterranean but not in the Bay of Biscay and English Channel").
