Several ways to search MetaRef database:
1. keyword search for taxonomy. For example, try search the database using the keyword "vulgatus".
2. Genome lookup using IMG genome ID.
3. Gene lookup using IMG gene ID.
Taxonomy: Arthrospira sp. PCC 8005
Full Lineage (Corrected)
We processed the genomes included in Metaref with PhyloPhlAn, a pipeline
developed for confidently detecting inconsistencies between the microbial
taxonomy and phylogeny that can be explained only assuming taxonomic
mislabeling. Using the pipeline we were able to detect these inconsistencies
and provide more plausible assignments when this was possible at high
confidence. The pipeline also refines the assignments by providing
species-level placements for taxa previously assigned at genus-level only
