16S rRNA RefSeq: V15.23    Genomic RefSeq: V10.1
eHOMD has been updated to version 3.1 (Update Detail)
eHOMD provides comprehensive curated information on bacteria in the human mouth and aerodigestive tract, including the pharynx, nasal passages, sinuses and esophagus. There are 774 oral bacterial species. 58% are officially named, 16% unnamed but cultivated and 26% are known only as uncultivated phylotypes. eHOMD taxonomy provides a provisional naming scheme for the currently unnamed taxa, based on the 16S rRNA sequence phylogeny, so that strain, clone and probe data from any laboratory can be directly linked to a stably named reference scheme.
