The Omnicrobe database contains around 1 million descriptions of microbe properties. These descriptions are created by analyzing and combining six information sources of various kinds, i.e. biological resource catalogs, sequence databases and scientific literature. The microbe properties are indexed by the Ontobiotope ontology and their taxa are indexed by an extended version of the taxonomy maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The Omnicrobe application covers all domains of microbiology.
