ACLAME Version 4 is a database of the mobile genetic elements (MGEs) as found in the genomes of all phages, plasmids and transposons known at present - 811 hosts in total.
Information on 122,154 proteins, discovered to be present in 2,326 MGEs, is provided.
The proteins were grouped in families as follows:
The prophages contained 6,822 clusters, the plasmids 18,228 groups, the viruses and prophages 16,057 groups and the viruses 11,503 clusters.
The database is in the process of developing a classification system of the functional modules of these MGEs at the protein level, gene level, and higher.
Keyword and Blast search options are available.
An option is also offered whereby host-specific groups of MGEs can be viewed.
