Web-Based Resources for Microbial Genomics

MicrobesOnline is a website for browsing and comparing prokaryotic genomes. MicrobesOnline is a product of the Virtual Institute for Microbial Stress and Survival, which is sponsored by the US Department of Energy Genomic Science Program.

Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG)
The Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) system serves as a community resource for comparative analysis and annotation of all publicly available genomes from three domains of life, in a uniquely integrated context. For more info, see Nucleic Acids Research, 2008, Vol. 36, Database issue.

CAMERA: Community Cyberinfrastructure for Advanced Marine Microbial Ecology Research and Analysis
The aim of CAMERA is to serve the needs of the microbial ecology research community by creating a rich, distinctive data repository and a bioinformatics tools resource that will address many of the unique challenges of metagenomic analysis.

DOE JGI Microbial Genomics Database
From this site you can get details about JGI projects, or go directly to the individual microbial sites. All of the individual sites include direct access to download sequence file(s), BLAST, and view annotations. Also, the Eukaryotic microbial sites include advanced tools.

GOLD™ Genomes OnLine Database
GOLD is a World Wide Web resource for comprehensive access to information regarding complete and ongoing genome projects, as well as metagenomes and metadata, around the world.

Sanger Centre Bacterial Genomes
The Sanger Institute bacterial sequencing effort is concentrated on pathogens and model organisms. The site provides a list of projects funded, underway or completed; all data from these projects are immediately and freely available.

Microbial Genomes from Genome Channel
Genome Channel is a computer-annotated listing of genomes maintained by the Computational Biology group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Protein Data Bank
The RCSB PDB provides a variety of tools and resources for studying the structures of biological macromolecules and their relationships to sequence, function, and disease.

KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes
A grand challenge in the post-genomic era is a complete computer representation of the cell, the organism, and the biosphere, which will enable computational prediction of higher-level complexity of cellular processes and organism behaviors from genomic and molecular information. Towards this end we have been developing a bioinformatics resource named KEGG as part of the research projects of the Kanehisa Laboratories in the Bioinformatics Center of Kyoto University and the Human Genome Center of the University of Tokyo.
