The New Zealand Barcode of Life (NZBOL) initiative aims to generate DNA Barcodes for all species of animals, plants, and fungi found in New Zealand, the sub-Antarctic Islands and the Ross Dependency.

NZBOL is an alliance of New Zealand University and Crown Research Institutes intended to coordinate and facilitate barcoding research and applications in New Zealand and to further the aims of the New Zealand Biodiversity Strategy.
