November 2017 release (20171113) of the NamesforLife taxonomy is now available for subscribers

The November release of the NamesforLife taxonomy contains an updated 16S rRNA data set that includes 14,726 sequences of validly published species and subspecies of Bacteria and Archaea, including new species, new combinations and corrections to nomenclature arising primarily from the placement of a small number of species/subspecies in enumerated unnamed intermediate taxa. Also, 6,773 genome assemblies have been linked to 5,740 of the type strains.

This month, we have introduced a new strain-to-genome resolution method that performs nightly data integration with the NamesforLife prokaryotic database and NCBI genome assemblies.
