NCBI Genome Assemblies and Resources

Genome Assemblies and Annotation: Information concerning how assemblies are produced, maintained and annotated.

  • Assembly Basics: A guide to how genome assemblies are performed.
  • Genome Reference Consortium: A project to support curation of genomes once the major sequencing effort has been completed. Currently supporting human and mouse.
  • AGP Information: An AGP is a commonly used file format for describing assemblies. They are accepted by GenBank as well as other genome browsers.
  • TPF Specification (pdf): A file format for providing sequence order for a given assembly. This is used as input for the genome maintenance projects.
  • Annotation Information: In formation on what annotation NCBI provides.

Eukaryotic Genome Guides: provides easy access to specific data for selected organisms. This data may come from NCBI, Model Organism Databases (MODs) or other community resouces.

  • Human: information concerning genomes (including the Watson and Venter genomes), variation and genome annotation.
  • Mouse: information concerning the reference genome as well as sequence data for other strains, gene trap data and genome annotation.
  • Rat: information concerning the reference genome as well as phenotypic data and genome annotation.
  • Drosophila: information concerning the genome of Drosphila melangaster as well as that of other flies.
  • See all Guides: a directory of all available genome guide pages.

Plant Genome Central: Access to plant genome sequencing information.

Microbial Genomes: Information on on microbial genomes.

Prokaryotic Genome Projects: Prokaryotic genome assembly information.

Organelle Genomes: Information on organelle genomes.
