Check for release changes

Hello
I’m curious about the gtdb release notes.

Can you check the bacteria,archaea information that has changed in the r202 version among the existing r95 version bacteria?

ex)

r95:GB_GCA_000497505.1~CP006736.1-#2

r202 : RS_GCF_000497505.1~NC_022912.1-#6

thank you.

Hi,

Data for all GTDB releases is available at:
https://data.gtdb.ecogenomic.org/releases/

You can use this to compare the genomes used in each release, the genomes selected as species representatives, the state of the GTDB taxonomy, etc. In terms of using GenBank or RefSeq genomes, we favour RefSeq genomes when available. Genomes at NCBI change over time and this is reflected in the GTDB.

Is there something specific you are looking for?

Cheers,
Donovan
