This database is a taxonomic genomic database, structured under ACNUC sequence database management system.

It results from an expertise crossing the data nomenclature database DSMZ ( Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen GmbH, Braunschweig, Germany ) and GenBank.

- TaxoBacGen contains only sequences described under a validly published species name according to the Bacteriological Code.

- Names with standing in nomenclature are added in field "DEFINITION".

- A keyword "type strain" is added in field "FEATURES/source/strain" in GenBank format definition to easyly identify Type Strains.

Taxobacgen is a genomic database designed for studies based on a strict respect of up-to-date nomenclature and taxonomy.

To search TaxoBacGen using ACNUC WWW-Query, select Search for sequences/Nucleotide sequences/Taxobacgen and fill in the criteria fields.

This database is different from BIBIDB althrough the construction process is similar : BIBIDB is a postgreSQL database queried by BIBI and the format and the informations are modified from GenBank.
