Participation, Benefits, and Responsibilities
     How can I participate?
  • Join the worldwide campaign
  • Insert COI sequences, tracefiles, taxonomic assignments and collection details into the Barcode of Life Data System
  • Send identified specimens for barcode analysis
  • Collect fresh caddisfly samples
  • Help with species identification of barcoded caddisfly specimens
Benefits of Participation
  • Campaign members can easily deposit and manage COI barcodes and other information for all specimens via the BOLD system
  • The CCDB may provide free sample processing to participating members with limited funds or no access to sequencing facilities, provided that the contributed caddisfly samples build new species coverage
  • The CCDB can provide competitive sequencing charges to members with grants in place
  • Barcoded specimens can be retained by the original collector
  • DNA aliquots can be shared with sample donors
  • Easy publication of COI sequences to GenBank
  • Utilization of analytical tools on BOLD
  • Sequences and details of specimen information are confidential to project participants and the campaign coordinator until published
  • Campaign members may establish connections with members of other projects (upon mutual agreements) through the campaign coordinator
  • Campaign participants are expected to provide reliable species identifications
  • Sample donors are responsible for providing detailed specimen information, e.g. taxonomy, collection information (collectors, collection date, GPS coordinates, etc.), sex, and life stage
  • Sample donors are encouraged to deposit barcoded specimens in a major collection
  • Sample donors are expected to re-examine species identity should discrepancies arise between morphological identification and COI results
