The Ribosomal Database Project

Nucleic Acids Res. 1992 May 11;20 Suppl(Suppl):2199-200. doi: 10.1093/nar/20.suppl.2199.


The Ribosomal Database Project (RDP) complies ribosomal sequences and related data, and redistributes them in aligned and phylogenetically ordered form to its user community. It also offers various software packages for handling, analyzing and displaying sequences. In addition, the RDP offers (or will offer) certain analytic services. At present the project is in an intermediate stage of development.
