Islander is a database of information on genomic islands-short sequences found to have integrated into the DNA of a cell by means of an integrase-obtained from sequenced bacterial genomes.
Information can be retrieved using the scrollbar at the top of the page, by island, integration site or bacterial/archaeal host on either an A to Z list or a phylogenetic list (ordered by evolutionary similarity). All the available data on the chosen island, integration site or host will be displayed.
