The public databases provided by the EDGAR platform for comparative genomics as part of the BIGI node in the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastucture (de.NBI) has again been updated and significantly extended. A new project type was added that consists all type strains of a certain family. In this project type also draft genomes are included. More than 4400 genomes in 226 new family-based projects are now available. This extends the public EDGAR database to 548 genera and families with 12479 genomes.
