  1. The Comprehensive Microbial Resource
    Resource Category : Databases -> Genomics Databases (non-vertebrate) -> General genomics databases

    Brief Description : One challenge presented by large-scale genome sequencing efforts is effective display of uniform information to the scientific community. The Comprehensive Microbial Resource (CMR) contains robust annotation of all complete prokaryotic genomes and allows for a wide variety of data retrievals. The bacterial information has been placed on the Web at for retrieval using standard web browsing technology. Retrievals can be based on protein properties such as molecular weight or hydrophobicity, GC-content, functional role assignments, Gene Ontology (GO) terms, and taxonomy. The CMR also has special web-based tools to allow data mining using pre-run homology searches, whole genome dot-plots, batch downloading and traversal across genomes using a variety of datatypes. Newly completed genomes available at GenBank are added to the CMR on a quarterly schedule.
