Genome Taxonomy Database

The Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB) is a database that provides a set of high quality microbial genomes with standardised taxonomic assignments derived from phylogenetics as a reference for the taxonomic assignment of new species. The entire database of genomes is available for performing large scale genomic analyses on high-quality, taxonomically annotated genomes.

Also available is the GTDB-tk tool for the taxonomic assignment of new genomes from sequence data from this github repository.
