What is the meaning of NIPH in Acinetobacter_sp._NIPH_298 ?
 
Sry about this stupid question.

I saw there are lots of Acinetobacter species on nicb ftp. If I want to do the diversity profiling, should I download all the Acinetobacter* data?

Thanks,

Lots of A.b. etc
 
So, yes, there are lots of A. b. in the databases. NIPH is probably National Institute of Public Health, Prague.

Having genomes without the metadata may be useful for something, but many of the assemblies will be problematic. Many will be assembled to reference, so that similarities can be spurious.

You can find some A. b. optical maps published for some strains, but not most.

In the end, depends on what you need to do...

Thanks for your answer. NIPH == National Institute of Public Health. which make a lot of senses.

So what does the metadata mean here?
