PLSDB - A plasmid database


This resource containes bacterial plasmids retrieved from the NCBI nucleotide database. An overview of the collected plasmids can be used to filter the sequences by various parameters such as length, topology, and taxonomic information. Furthermore, nucleotide sequences can be searched in the database by either using Mash for longer sequences (e.g. contigs or long reads), or by using BLASTn for shorter sequences, e.g. genes.
For more information, please read our updated publication, original publication and visit our FAQ page.
