Marine Metagenomics Portal

The mission of Marine Metagenomics Portal (MMP) is to provide the marine scientific community with high-quality curated and freely accessible microbial genomics and metagenomics resources.

Databases

MarRef is a manually curated marine microbial reference genome database that contains completely sequenced genomes. Each entry contains 120 metadata fields including information about sampling environment or host, organism and taxonomy, phenotype, pathogenicity, assembly and annotation information.

MarDB includes all non-complete marine microbial genomes regardless of level of completeness. Each entry contains 120 metadata fields including information about sampling environment or host, organism and taxonomy, phenotype, pathogenicity, assembly and annotation.

MarFun is a manually curated marine fungi genome database.

SalDB is a salmon specific database of genome sequenced prokaryotes representing the microbiota of fishes found in the taxonomic family of Salmonidae.

Services

BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) finds local similarity between sequences, which can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families. Our BLAST service provides search on all genes and protein coding sequences from the MAR databases.

The Visualization page provides an interactive visualization tool giving an insight into the quantity and quality of the sample contained in MarRef and MarDB.

The Download page gives free access to the contextual data, sequence and other microbial genomics and metagenomics resources generated from the MAR databases.

META-pipe is a complete workflow for the analysis of marine metagenomic data. It provides assembly of high-throughput sequence data, functional annotation of predicted genes, and taxonomic profiling.

About

Marine Metagenomics Portal was developed as a part of the ELIXIR EXCELERATE project and made online in 2017. It is maintained by The Center for Bioinformatics (SfB) at the UiT The Arctic University of Norway. SfB is hosting the UiT node of ELIXIR Norway.
