More about MicrobeNet

The knowledgebase content is created and curated by CDC subject matter experts (SMEs).

The sequence data represents almost 7,000 bacterial species with 16S rRNA and other gene sequences such as gyrB and rpoB.

Biochemical information, macroscopic and microscopic images, and written descriptions are displayed on the species details pages.

The search functionality in MicrobeNet is very flexible. It allows you to target specific areas of the system, or the entire content base.
