Complete Microbial Genomes is an extensive collection of data, resources and tools for prokaryotic genomic analysis brought to you by The National Center for Biotechnology Information, or NCBI. Data and tools are organized into three major tables, including Organism info, Complete genomes, and Genomes in progress. The Organism info table provides organism information for all the prokaryotic genomes that are either completely sequenced, have a draft assembly, or are not yet sequenced. Features described include kingdom, genome size, GC content, Gram stain reactivity, shape, motility, salinity and oxygen requirements, habitat, and disease details. The Complete genomes table describes, and links to, a variety of genomic details including GenBank and RefSeq records, as well as sequencing center information, and more. It also features many useful genomic analysis tools, including TaxMap, ProtTable, COG Table, BLAST, CDD search, GenePlot, TaxPlot and gMap, to name a few. The Genomes in progress table includes data for genomes that have whole genome shotgun draft assemblies, as well as no sequence as of yet.
