The StrainSelect and Greengenes Databases
- The Greengenes database is comprised of 16S rRNA genes organized formats for use in pipelines and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Beware that these publicly available versions of the Greengenes database utilize taxonomic terms proposed from phylogenetic methods applied many years ago between 2012 and 2013. Since then, a variety of novel phylogenetic methods have been proposed for Archaea and Bacteria. For recent examples of these methods see Yokono, et al. 2018 or Parks, et al. 2022.
- Selected experimental datasets created with the PhyloChip 16S rRNA microarray are available in MIAME format.
- Special collections of sequences posted by the NIH's Dr. Conlan are also available.
