Find a microbe of interests

There are at least two ways to find a microbe of interest.

1. Use the global search widget

A global search widget is available on the navigation bar next to the GMrepo logo:

Possible hits will be shown automatically in a dropdown list when users enter three and more characters:

Users can then select any item from the list, and to the microbe of interest.


  • the search is automatic, so there is no need to press the enter key or click the icon;
  • nothing will be shown if no search results can be found in our database.

2. Search in the All taxa webpage

Users can first go to the All taxa , and search in the Species or Genus tables:


Valid search term include:

  • scientific name, for example fusobacterium
  • NCBI taxonomic ID, for example 851


  • Users need to search for Species or Genus in two separate tables;
  • The two tables only contain a subset of all microbes available in GMrepo.
