ATCC Genome Portal Update: Gold Genomes, Tags, and Contig Information

The One Codex and ATCC teams have been hard at work improving the ATCC Genome Portal. Since launching 6 months ago, we’ve more than doubled the number of genomes on the portal (adding more than 300 new genomes on top of our original 250) and created new features to help you navigate our collection of high-quality reference genomes. In this post, we’ll show you our new Gold genomes, help you browse the collection by tag, and show you how to access more granular contig details for each of our genomes.
