The BOLD Identification System (IDS) for rbcL and matK is the default identification tool for Plant barcodes and accepts sequences from the Ribulose-bisphosphate
carboxylase and Maturase K genes. It returns a species-level identification when possible. Further validation with independent genetic markers will be desirable in
some forensic applications.
The BLAST algorithm is employed in place of the standard BOLD identification engine for rbcL and matK sequences.
There are very few rbcL and matK records on BOLD so most queries will likely not return a successful match.
