Datasets available for Geographic-BLAST

Prokaryotic Genomes contains 1832 sequenced prokaryotic (Bacteria and Archaea) genomes, which you may browse here.
Global Ocean Sampling Metagenomes contains all publically available metagenomes available from the Global Ocean Sampling (GOS) Expedition, which aimed to conduct a global genomic survey of microbial life in the world's oceans. The GOS metagenomes contained here are those that exclusively target microbes (organisms 0.1-0.8 μm), such as Bacteria, Archaea, and picoeukaryotes.
Marine Phage Genomes consists of 23 fully sequenced marine phage genomes. Contextual data for recently published genomes is available, and their genomes will be included in Geographic-BLAST once publicly available in GenBank.
16S/18S rRNA consists of 996,747 small subunit (ssu) sequences in the SILVA-SSU-parc database release 102.
23S/28S rRNA consists of 161,017 large subunit (lsu) sequences in the SILVA-LSU-parc database release 102.
