Genome Properties

The Genome Properties system consists of a suite of "Properties" which are carefully defined attributes of prokaryotic organisms whose status can be described by numerical values or controlled vocabulary terms for individual completely sequenced genomes.

The Genome Properties system has been designed to capture the widest possible range of attributes and currently encompasses taxonomic terms, genometric calculations, metabolic pathways, systems of interacting macromolecular components and quantitative and descriptive experimental observations (phenotypes) from the literature. For more information and an in depth description of Genome Properties please refer to the Publication.
