Effective May 2024, NCBI Datasets will replace legacy Genome and Assembly web resources
As part of our ongoing effort to enhance your experience and modernize our services, NCBI will gradually replace the legacy Genome and Assembly resources with the newly introduced NCBI Datasets resource. NCBI Datasets is a continually evolving platform designed to provide easy and intuitive access to NCBI’s sequence data and metadata.
- The legacy Genome and Assembly web resources will no longer be available after May 2024
- There will be no changes to how you access the databases using E-Utilities or EDirect

As part of our ongoing effort to modernize and improve your experience, we are excited to introduce the new NCBI Datasets genome annotation table. You can now quickly and easily access annotated gene and protein sequences annotated by NCBI RefSeq or GenBank submitters.
Features & Benefits
- Easier than ever to search and download data for annotated genes
- Download gene, transcript and protein sequences, and metadata
- Annotation tables are available for ~7500 eukaryotic and ~1.5M prokaryotic annotated genomes
- Annotation data is now available for both RefSeq and GenBank submitted annotations
- Filter by gene type, gene name, and chromosome or location on the genome
