Plasmid Genome Database

The Plasmid Genome Database aims to collate biological and genomic data for all bacterial plasmids in the hopes of enabling rapid, interrogation of both meta- and genomic data. Data maintained includes access to all plasmid genomes and information on core genomic features obtained from parsing the original EMBL/DDBJ/NCBI submission. In addition a suite of third party analyses has been performed for each genome to supplement the original annotation. This site also links to Genome Atlases provided by the Centre for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS). The motivation behind the construction of this site derived from observations from genome sequencing projects: the abundance and inferred importance of the horizontal gene pool (HGP) in bacterial adaptation and evolution. In so far as plasmids are autonomously replicating, extrachromosomal elements they are a readily identifiable and accessible component of the HGP. Also plasmids have been identified in almost all bacterial divisions, ranging in size from less than 2 kbp to > 1.5 Mbp and as such represent a defined, yet diverse and complex sample of genes in the HGP.
