Is there a way to download all
COI sequences from
BOLD database (http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Public_SearchTerms)? I tried to download all sequences from the search button of "Public Data Portal" without any search term but it returns zero hits.
I also tried with a search term of "
Arthorapoda" which actually returned
Found 4,791,963 published records, with 4,791,963 records with sequences, forming 402,549 BINs (clusters), with specimens from 243 countries, deposited in 1,566 institutions. Of these records, 2,282,392 have species names, and represent 200,331 species.
With download options on the top right.
I was thinking if any of you have used a better option such as API or via command line to download all COI sequences?
