Abstract
A Summary: DNA barcoding and meta-barcoding have become irreplaceable in research and applications, where identification of taxa alone or within a mixture, respectively, becomes relevant. Pioneering studies were in the microbiological context, yet nowadays also plants and animals become targeted. Given the variety of markers used, formatting requirements for classifiers and constant growth of primary databases, there is a need for dedicated reference database creation. We developed a web and command-line interface to generate such on-the-fly for any applicable marker and taxonomic group with optional filtering, formatting and restriction specific for (meta-)barcoding purposes. Also, databases optionally receive a DOI, making them well-documented with meta-data, publicly sharable and citable.
