MAR Databases

The MAR (MARine) databases are richly annotated and manually curated contextual and sequence databases. MarRef contains completely sequenced marine prokaryotic genomes. MarDB includes all non-complete marine prokaryotic genomes regardless of level of completeness. MarCat is a catalogue of marine genes and proteins derived from metagenomics samples. MarFun is a manually curated marine fungi genome database.



META-pipe is a complete workflow for the analysis of marine metagenomic data. It provides assembly of high-throughput sequence data, functional annotation of predicted genes, and taxonomic profiling. META-pipe is not released as an ELIXIR service yet. For now you may use the NeLS META-pipe service.



MAR BLAST provides BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) sequence search agains all genome and metagenome nucleotide and protein coding sequences generated from the curated MAR databases MarRef, MarDB and MarCat.
