PersonalGenBank - Local sequence database software

PersonalGenBank is a database software maintaining sequences and sequence information in GenBank-format. Generally, the user downloads a large chunk of sequences from GenBank to the local computer and then imports these sequences into PersonalGenBank.

Sequence entries (the accession number) that are already present in the local PersonalGenBank-database are not imported except if the data deviates from existing data! In this case the old data is not overwritten but a new record is added to the database. The old record is marked as 'obsolete' in a special database field whereas the new record is marked as 'updated' plus a list of the deviating fields. This enables the user to quickly find updated records and to compare changes to previous data.

Import GenBank-formatted files into a database.
  • Filtering of incoming data (e.g. sequence motifs, taxonomic groups etc.).
  • Searching for records in the database.
  • Output the data as GenBank-formatted files.
  • Store the search and filter options in profiles.
