The European small subunit ribosomal RNA database.
The European database on SSU rRNA can be consulted via the World WideWeb at http://bioinformatics.psb.ugent.be/webtools/rRNA/ and compiles all complete or nearly complete small subunit ribosomal RNA sequences. Sequences are provided in aligned format. The alignment takes into account the secondary structure information derived by comparative sequence analysis of thousands of sequences. Additional information such as literature references, taxonomy, secondary structure models and nucleotide variability maps, is also available.
