CyanoBase: The Cyanobacteria Genome Database Update 2010

Nucleic Acids Res. 2010 Jan;38(Database issue):D379-81. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkp915. Epub 2009 Oct 30.


CyanoBase ( is the genome database for cyanobacteria, which are model organisms for photosynthesis. The database houses cyanobacteria species information, complete genome sequences, genome-scale experiment data, gene information, gene annotations and mutant information. In this version, we updated these datasets and improved the navigation and the visual display of the data views. In addition, a web service API now enables users to retrieve the data in various formats with other tools, seamlessly.
