Quick post: nice microbial genomes database: MGBD (hat tip to Google Scholar Updates)

Just discovered this paper: MBGD update 2013: the microbial genome database for exploring the diversity of microbial world.  Seems to be a useful microbial genomes database with some nice associated tools.  Among the potentially useful features:

General Ortholog Table
Select your own organisms for a Custom Ortholog Table
Add your own genome in My MBGD Mode

And more.  Anyway – worth checking out.

I note – I found out about this via Google Scholar Updates:

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
