BacDive - The Bacterial Diversity Metadatabase focuses providing organism-linked information covering the multifarious aspects of bacterial biodiversity. The BacDive portal offers information on taxonomic classification, morphology, physiology, cultivation, origin and natural habitat for more than 50,000 bacterial and archeal strains. Where available, links are given to access the respective biological resources and the associated sequence data via the INSDC accession numbers for genomes and 16S rRNA. In addition to the advanced search functionallities of the web portal access, BacDive offers data retrieval via a web service api or individual compilations of data sets that can be exported to CSV spreadsheet files.
