The EzBioCloud Genome Database is a part of EzBioCloud.net. It is maintained by ChunLab, Inc. to provide best-curated genome database of Bacteria and Archaea. Data sources for the database are NCBI and other public domain (e.g. JGI).
The database has the following features:
- Taxonomically correct database: all genomes are identified using the TrueBac TM ID service.
- Quality-controlled: Contamination and low-quality genomes were excluded. All genomes from single cell amplification and metagenome shotgun assembly were excluded unless they are completely sequenced.
- Taxonomically mislabelled genomes were properly labeled. E.g. NCBI GCA_000720375.1 is not the Rhodococcus rhodnii’s type strain (mislabeled strain). For correct identification, click here and go to “ID” tab.
- Many cryptic species (species that are not formally described but have genome sequences) were identified and included. E.g., click the genus names to check the cryptic species (as *_s naming)
- All genomes were annotated using the same standard pipeline. [Learn more]
- Genome browser is provided to explore genes, CDS etc.
- You can BLAST-search with any genome.
