Comprehensive Microbial Resource
The Comprehensive Microbial Resource (CMR) is a website carrying data on publicly available prokaryotic genomes. Searches for similarities and differences between genomes can be conveniently carried out as all the information is stored on a single website. A Mirror site is kept by the Genome Encyclopedia of Microbes (GEM) in Korea.
The effective display of large-scale genome sequencing projects is addressed by this site. The system enables a wide variety of data retrieval. Retrievals may focus on "protein properties such as molecular weight or hydrophobicity, GC-content, functional role assignments and taxonomy. The CMR also has special web-based tools to allow data mining using pre-run homology searches, whole genome dot-plots, batch downloading and traversal across genomes using a variety of datatypes." - Jeremy D.
