DNA barcoding is increasingly used as a diagnostic tool in phytosanitary laboratories. The EPPO Standard PM7/129 ‘DNA barcoding as an identification tool for a number of regulated pests’ was published on 2016-11-28. The document provides guidelines on the use of the DNA barcoding protocols in support of the identification of a number of regulated pests and invasive plant species comparing DNA barcode regions with those deposited in publicly available sequence databases. The outcome of DNA barcoding tests can be negatively affected by a number of factors. For that reason, the analysis of sequence data should be performed by proficient operators. The Euphresco project 2017-A-217 ‘Use of barcoding, from theory to practice (PRACTIBAR)’ was funded to raise awareness on barcoding as a generic method for pest identification and to train experts of the competent organisations. The videos are part of the training material developed in the framework of the project and provide an overview of the practical training workshops organised in 2017 and 2018 by the Dutch National Plant Protection Organization (NL), the University of Guelf (Canada) and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization.
