Database that provides access to the current and comprehensive 16S rRNA gene sequence alignment for browsing, blasting, probing, and downloading. The data and tools can assist the researcher in choosing phylogenetically specific probes, interpreting microarray results, and aligning/annotating novel sequences. The 16S rRNA gene database provides chimera screening, standard alignment, and taxonomic classification using multiple published taxonomies. ARB users can use Greengenes to update local databases.
