SEAFOOD GENOMIC DNA CATALOG
The Ocean Genome Legacy Seafood Genome Reference Collection can be searched by scientific name, taxa, and collection location (ocean or country). Once you have identified a specimen in which you are interested, please make a note of the specimen ID and contact us so we may send you a sample.

A Note on Sequence Complexes
In some cases, species cannot be distinguished based on the FDA standard barcoding protocol because closely related species are more than 98% similar. In these cases, we refer to the taxa as a sequence complex, as defined below.
- cpp sequence complex — mCOI sequencing has >98% identity to three species in the FDA RSSL: Lutjanus campechanus, L. purpureus and L. peru
- gs sequence complex — mCOI sequencing has >98% identity to two species in the FDA RSSL: Lutjanus guttatus and L. synagris
- an sequnce complex — mCOI sequencing has >98% identity to two species in the FDA RSSL: Sebastes alutus and S. norvegicus
