I would like to know were to download a table file with all reported bacteria and its corresponding PHYLUM, CLASS, ORDER and FAMILY.

Basically, its the same table than this one from GOLD genomes but containing the non-sequenced bacteria too:

Thanks for you help, Bernardo


I am not sure if such a complete list exists. There are some lists available, which look pretty complete. Have a look at Labrat and Microbexpert. There is also a book available, which contains an approved list of bacterial names, see here. Otherwise you can of course search your way through PubMed and see, what comes out.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Chris, but I need the list in table format (tab or comma delimited file). I couldn't find this option in the websites you suggested. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I am not sure if this list exists at all. You could try to contact these websites and ask them if they can provide this data in a different format. $\endgroup$
