Welcome! This resource allows you to iteratively explore the genomic context,
functional associations, phylogenetic information and ecological distribution of
413,335 novel and highly curated protein families,
identified from thousands of uncultivated microbial organisms.
All data is derived from the systematic analysis of the so-called
microbial dark matter of a multi-habitat metagenomics dataset.
You can search novel protein families by their genomic context
(e.g. associated to specific KEGG functions or eggNOG orthologs),
by taxa conservation (i.e., by finding rank-specific protein families),
or even by association with fitness experiments.
