  • 1 December 2011
TLDR
The NCBI Taxonomy database is a central organizing hub for many of the resources at the NCBI, and provides a means for clustering elements within other domains of NCBI web site, for internal linking between domains of the Entrez system and for linking out to taxon-specific external resources on the web. Expand
Analysis of compositionally biased regions in sequence databases.
TLDR
For genomic studies, it is essential to view compositional bias in the context of many types of other features, such as recognizable functional sites, transcripts, coding sequences, and homologies, which are being integrated into software packages that have graphic multilevel browsing facilities and include zoom functions. Expand
Statistics of Local Complexity in Amino Acid Sequences and Sequence Databases
TLDR
Comparisons underpin the choice of robust optimization heuristics in an algorithm, SEG, designed to segment amino acid sequences fully automatically into subsequences of contrasting complexity, adequately approximated by a first-order random model. Expand

  • Biology, Computer Science
  • Nucleic Acids Res.
  • 14 November 2014
TLDR
The NCBI Taxonomy Database now includes annotation of type material that the authors use to flag sequences from type in GenBank and in Genomes, which has important implications for many NCBI resources. Expand
Update on RefSeq microbial genomes resources
TLDR
Several new features have been added to RefSeq prokaryotic genomes data processing pipeline including the calculation of genome groups (clades) and the optimization of protein clusters generation using pan-genome approach. Expand
Meeting report: GenBank microbial genomic taxonomy workshop (12–13 May, 2015)
TLDR
A plan to find and correct misidentified genomes using genomic comparison statistics together with a scaffold of reliably identified genomes from type to correct them is developed. Expand
