European Database for Ribosomal RNA Sequences

Description The analyses of marker genes have become an integral part of microbial biodiversity research. The ribosomal RNA gene (rDNA) turned out to be the "Gold" standard with an exponential growth of entries in the public databases over the last years. Today the around 4 million (April 2013) publicly available small and large subunit (SSU and LSU) rDNA sequences demand for specialized quality controlled knowledge databases. The ARB and SILVA rDNA database project was established around 20 years ago as a specialized knowledge database. The SILVA project is an internationally accepted comprehensive web resource for up to date, quality controlled databases of aligned rDNA sequences from the Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya domains. Their applications range from biodiversity research to industrial quality control and medical diagnostics.
