About N4L::Guide

The N4L::Guide is a Firefox browser add-on that highlights bacterial names in a web page (a journal article, for instance) and links them to a N4L Digital Object Identifier. When you click one of these links, a menu will be displayed, containing relevant information about the nomenclature, taxonomy, and strain information, including genome data.
