ACLAME is a database dedicated to the collection and classification of mobile genetic elements (MGEs) from various sources, comprising all known phage genomes, plasmids and transposons. In addition to provide information on the full genomes and genetic entities, it aims at building a comprehensive classification of the functional modules of MGE's at the protein, gene, and higher levels.
Welcome to ACLAME version 0.4

The MGEs available in ACLAME are:
with their proteins grouped into
with their proteins grouped into

You can view the MGEs grouped according to their hosts or perform a keyword search in ACLAME with the following form:
Operator: AND OR Case sensitive
