NCBI Datasets BETA

NCBI Datasets is a new resource that lets you easily gather data from across NCBI databases. Find and download gene, transcript, protein and genome sequences, annotation and metadata.

Genomes

Browse and download genome data using our species pages. Genome data includes genome, transcript and protein sequences, genome annotation and metadata.

Species Browser

View taxonomic relationships and find genome data for closely related species using our interactive species browser.

Genes

Quickstart

Create a customized Gene table to view and download gene data. Gene data is also available through our command-line tool and API. Gene data includes gene, transcript and protein sequences organized by gene.
