Provides an easy way of accessing the sequences and all-inclusive annotation data on the structures of the cyanobacterial genomes. It contains cyanobacterial genomic sequences from 376 species, which consist of 86 complete and 290 draft genomes. The user interface was optimized for large genomic data to include the use of semantic web technologies and JBrowse. CyanoBase focuses on the representation and reusability of reference genome annotations, which are continuously updated by manual curation. Advanced users can also retrieve this information through the representational state transfer-based web application programming interface in an automated manner.
