This database contains 3235 sequences and structures for three major groups of algae, the Chlorophyta, the Rhodophyta, and the Bacillariophyta and it provides a dynamic way to retrieve the information.
This web service is divided into two sections. On the left-hand side we can view the taxonomic lineage represented as a tree. Each node in the tree can be expanded by clicking on triangle. When the user clicks a taxon name the sequence and secondary structure information for this node will be displayed on the right-hand side of the website in xFASTA format. A Download all as xFASTA file link allows the user to retrieve the displayed information. The Home link allows the user to return to this front page.
The scripts used to generate the data behind this web service can be retrieved from the git repository in the link below:https://gitlab.mister-muffin.de/akirakio/database-scripts
The 18S substitution models estimated for the three taxa by Dr. Tobias Muller (Department of Bioinformatics, University of Wuerzburg) can be downloaded from the following link:.https://gitlab.mister-muffin.de/akirakio/18S_substitution_models
