VoSeq is, and will always be, open source, and we can host it for you.



VoSeq is a database manager to store voucher and DNA sequence data for phylogenetic analysis. It is a unique database that enables to digitize biological data of museum specimens and molecular data such as DNA sequences, primers and genes.


VoSeq has tools that facilitate the batch upload of lots of voucher data and DNA sequences with a few clicks. It also has BLAST capabilities, meaning that you can find out whether one particular DNA sequence is most similar to other sequence in NCBI GenBank. You can also BLAST your sequence against all others in your VoSeq database (see BLAST plugin section for details).


VoSeq is written in Python. It uses PostgreSQL as database back-end and it is designed to run either locally in your own computer or on a remote (commercial) server service.
