How to get the geographic information of a specific genome i.e. the area of collected sample of that genome?
Thanks in advance
There's no single answer to this question. Perhaps that information is online, perhaps not. Some databases will have a slot to hold that information, others won't.
I am working on bacterial genome from Ensembl database . But I did not find any specific information on geographic location of specific strain of a genome in any format of data.
Am I missing this information from ensembl or its not available there?
Or is there any other database from where I can get this information?
Of course I can get this geographic location information for a single genome from the article/paper, where they have published it. But for 5000 or more genome, it's impossible.
I've never seen it in the Ensembl database, but you could just ask the Ensembl helpdesk to find out for sure.
Thanks for your reply.
Ensembl Help desk suggest the web link: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena
But I think, this type of metadata is not available so frequently.
The only way to go with the relevant publication search, but it is really impossible.
Let see what happen!!!!!
