Bio Resources

Last updated February 13, 2023

Reference genomes, protein and nucleotide sequences databases, and other bio resources are now available on Discovery and Endeavour. If you need a specific release that is not currently included in the pages below, please submit a help ticket and we will try to make those resources available to you.

0.0.1 Genbank

An open access, annotated sequence database of all publicly available nucleotide sequences and their protein translations.

0.0.2 Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB)

An initiative to establish a standardized microbial taxonomy based on genome phylogeny, primarily funded by an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship.

0.0.3 Genomes

A set of ready-to-use reference sequences and annotations for commonly analyzed organisms in a directory accessible from the Discovery and Endeavour clusters.

0.0.4 Pfam Database

A large collection of protein families, each represented by multiple sequence alignments and hidden Markov models (HMMs).

0.0.5 TIGRFAMs

A resource consisting of curated multiple sequence alignments, Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) for protein sequence classification, and associated information designed to support automated annotation of (mostly prokaryotic) proteins.

0.0.6 UniProt

A resource comprised of three databases, each optimized for different uses.
