Please note that we will be retiring this old site on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015.
At that point, the URL for will bring you to our new site currently hosted at We encourage you to visit the new site now and see a more recent set of updated gene annotations and MANY more Pseudomonas strains.

Strain-Specific Summaries and Analyses

Choose from Complete Genomes

Choose from Incomplete/Draft Genomes

By linking from here, one can go to an overview of any reference strain's chromosome or plasmids with a summary of their genes, broken down by feature type or its product's primary subcellular localization.

Submit an Annotation Update

Submit an update to the continually-updated Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 or LESB58 genome annotations.

DNA/Amino Acid Sequences

Retrieve a specific range from genomic DNA.

Download a specific ORF's DNA or protein sequence.

Genome Projects

Pseudomonas Genome Projects - A summary of complete and in-progress sequencing projects.

Pseudomonas Genome Database updates and more

Since 2001, the Pseudomonas Genome database has been a resource for peer-reviewed, continually-updated annotations for the Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 reference strain's genome and, more recently, comparative analyses of several related Pseudomonas species.

Funding for this work is gratefully provided by Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc., a non-profit drug discovery and development affiliate of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (learn more).

Notice: Please be advised that this website will not be available on February 24 between 09:00am to 12:00pm PST due to maintenance being performed at the SFU data center. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to limit the downtime to a minimum.

December 1, 2014

233 updates including new genes, product names, PseudoCAP functional classifications and references were added.

Updated the links page.

October 23, 2014

Our website is back up running after an unexpected network problem on campus. Sorry for any inconvenience experienced due to this outage.

August 9, 2014

The server was down earlier today due to a network-related issue. We have addressed the problem and all resources appear to be functioning okay. Sorry for any inconvience .

We would like to extend an invitation to all Pseudomonas researchers to participate in our 2014 Gene Ontology Annotation initiative. Annotate your favourite genes with GO terms in exchange for authorship on a paper! Learn More »

April 14, 2014

Annotation files are now available for download in GFF3 format.

April 11, 2014

Ortholog download files have been updated to fix issue where some orthologs were missing.

January 29, 2014

44 updates including new genes, product names, PseudoCAP functional classifications and references were added to the P. aeruginosa PAO1 genome annotation.

1994 manually-curated gene ontology (GO) term annotations added to P. aeruginosa PAO1, of which 1042 have been experimentally demonstrated in P. aeruginosa.

Curated GO term annotations transferred to conservative Pseudomonas Ortholog Group (POG) orthologs in other P. aeruginosa strains.

New search form: Browse PseudoCAP-curated GO terms.

Curated GO term annotations for P. aeruginosa strains can now be downloaded in gaf version 2.0 format.

Fixed bug where GO term (but not GO accession) searches were returning 0 results.
