Microbial Genome Projects

About the Projects

Microbial genome projects that are in progress, have been completed, or are funded but not yet underway, are presented here along with information on the target organism, project status, mechanism of support, collaborators,and DNA sequences. For questions or comments, contact the Microbial Genome Group.
