Collects and classifies mobile genetic elements (MGEs) including phases and plasmids from various sources. ACLAME provides a platform for analyzing MGE diversity from a global scale down to specific groups of MGEs and tools for the detection of new MGEs integrated in bacterial genomes. The BLAST search interface allows for a simple querying of the ACLAME sequences, returning information such as for each hit sequence, the functional annotation, the MGE, host(s) and protein families it belongs to.
