Genomes in the following categories are excluded from NCBI Datasets:

  • Fragmented genomes
  • Partial genomes
  • Contaminated genomes
  • Genomes where the sequence or assembly is otherwise low-quality
  • Metagenomes

Where can I find a genome that is missing from NCBI Datasets?

If you are interested in a genome assembly that is missing from NCBI Datasets, you can still find it in Assembly , our comprehensive archival genome assembly database. If you would like to report a genome assembly that is missing from NCBI Datasets that you think belongs there because of its value to the research community, we welcome your feedback .
