GTDB-Tk Classify - v1.6.0



Obtain objective taxonomic assignments for bacterial and archaeal genomes based on the Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB) ver R06-RS202


GTDB-Tk v1.6.0 is a software toolkit for assigning objective taxonomic classifications to bacterial and archaeal genomes. It is designed to work with recent advances that allow hundreds or thousands of metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) to be obtained directly from environmental samples. It can also be applied to isolate and single-cell genomes.


This app is using gtdbtk release 202 data (warning: clicking on link will start download 47.35 GB of data). This reference data corresponds to the GTDB R06-RS202 release.

About GTDB

The Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB) is constructed from RefSeq and Genbank genomes, and releases are indexed to RefSeq releases. All genomes are quality controlled using CheckM and those statistics can be found on the GTDB website.
