Abstract: The MicrobesOnline genome database contains over 300 prokaryotic genomes. All genomes are automatically analyzed through the VIMSS genome pipeline. We use publicly available sequence analysis tools and databases to search for homologs (NCBI BLAST, SwissProt, COG) and protein domains (InterPro), to assign gene ontologies (Gene Ontology Consortium) and EC numbers and to map the metabolic pathways (KEGG). We then link the orthology relationships between genes, predict operon structures and regulon networks. Most of the genomes are downloaded from NCBI and genes are parsed from GenBank files. When an incomplete genome is directly downloaded from a sequencing center, we predict protein coding genes using CRITICA and Glimmer, tRNA genes using tRNAscan and other RNA genes by BLASTn. All of the info in the VIMSS genome database is freely available on our website. [Information of the supplier]
