Title: A curated database of cyanobacterial strains relevant for modern taxonomy and phylogenetic studies
Publisher: Nature Research (part of Springer Nature)
Issue Date: 2017
Abstract: The dataset herein described lays the groundwork for an online database of relevant cyanobacterial strains, named CyanoType ( It is a database that includes categorized cyanobacterial strains useful for taxonomic, phylogenetic or genomic purposes, with associated information obtained by means of a literature-based curation. The dataset lists 371 strains and represents the first version of the database (CyanoType v.1). Information for each strain includes strain synonymy and/or co-identity, strain categorization, habitat, accession numbers for molecular data, taxonomy and nomenclature notes according to three different classification schemes, hierarchical automatic classification, phylogenetic placement according to a selection of relevant studies (including this), and important bibliographic references. The database will be updated periodically, namely by adding new strains meeting the criteria for inclusion and by revising and adding up-to-date metadata for strains already listed. A global 16S rDNA-based phylogeny is provided in order to assist users when choosing the appropriate strains for their studies. © The Author(s) 2017.
