Accessing the SEED database

The SEED database of microbial genomes is one that we use all the time. We work with our colleagues at Argonne National Laboratory to develop the SEED and tools that access and use it. Here are some of the tools that we have developed around the SEED. After the read more you can learn all about how we access the SEED…


Our phantome database uses the SEED infrastructure to annotate phage genomes.

SEED Servers

The SEED servers are a new invention – separate from the Web services using SOAP. Here is a post that shows you how to access the SEED servers directly and programmatically.

SEED SOAP Web services

Accessing the SEED database via SOAP. See our BMC Bioinformatics paper that describes accessing the SEED webservices, but this blog post also describes how to access the SEED using Web services and Java.
