Marine Bacterioplankton Database
Contact: Gasol, Josep M.
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation
Notes: Release with permission of the appropriate parties
Here you will find specific information on marine bacterioplankton and their global distribution via a map tool. This database was established to provide environmental data related to bacterioplankton ribosomal DNA sequences. more
This information is organized in two layouts: 1) In the database, a subset of GenBank records of 16S rRNA gene sequences is available for general browsing. The sequences were assembled into contigs corresponding to metagenes of likely ribotypes (for more information, read this). Each of the sequence included in the contigs can be accessed separately. You can compare your own sequences to this database using the local BLAST tool You are welcome to submit additional information (sampling coordinates, depth and time) to existing records, but you can also submit new sequences not yet included. 2) The map tool allows you to display global and regional distribution information of similar bacterioplankton ribotypes.
