It’s now easier to find known antimicrobial resistance (AMR) protein information at NCBI. You can search by gene symbol, protein name, or accession across NCBI databases and retrieve the best representative DNA sequence that is a reference for antimicrobial resistance genes from the National Database of Antibiotic Resistant Organisms (NDARO).
Here are a few examples of what you can search for:
- AMR allele symbol: blaTEM-104
- AMR gene family: CTX-M
- AMR protein name: aminoglycoside N-acetyltransferase AAC(3)-IIa
- RefSeq Nucleotide accession: NG_048576.1
To help you avoid typos and save time, we added as-you-type suggestions to direct you to the best results when searching for long or hard-to-spell protein names. This new search experience also provides easy access to NCBI’s Pathogen Isolate Browser, a resource that allows researchers to identify bacterial genomes with AMR genes.
