## Welcome to **W**orldmap of **F**ish **G**enetic **D**iversity (**WFGD**)
The app is designed to visualize biogeographic patterns of fish genetic diversity.
So, we mined the [Barcode Of Life database]( to extract mitochondrial barcode sequences of Cytochrome Oxidase Subunit 1 (COI) from marine and freshwater actinopterygii species.
Genetic diversity was estimated as the mean number of mutations per base pair for COI sequence across species within each cell on a worldwide grid with a 200-km spatial resolution.
* 514 cells for marine fishes
* 343 cells for freshwater fishes
The colour gradient represents the relative variation of intraspecific genetic diversity: the reddest square cells have the highest genetic diversity.
### Method
