The Belgian Network for DNA Barcoding (BeBoL) was established in 2011 and includes 21 partners from Belgian universities and research institutions. The network aims to facilitate, centralize, and coordinate DNA Barcoding activities in Belgium. BeBoL assists in exchanging experience and providing training opportunities.
An early achievement of BeBoL was the organization of the Third European Conference for the Barcode of Life, 2012 in Brussels (ECBOL3), themed “Barcoding of organisms of policy concern”. Although it was originally not planned to publish congress proceedings of ECBOL3, many participants felt that it would be a great opportunity to produce a collection of DNA Barcoding publications presented either on the congress or contributed by BeBoL partners. The result is a special ZooKeys issue on DNA Barcoding dealing with a wide array of animal and plant taxa, and aims at demonstrating various aspects of DNA Barcoding, including fundamental biodiversity research, applications, methodological issues, software, and limitations.
