Join us on June 17 to learn about NCBI’s curated marker rRNA sequences (targeted loci) for Bacteria and Archaea (16S) and Fungi (18S, 28S and ITS) from type strains, which are now available as a distinct set of BLAST databases. You will learn how to access these data and use these databases and BLAST to help identify organisms and explore their diversity.
