NCTC 3000 project

A comprehensive resource of bacterial type and reference genomes

NCTC 3000 is a collaborative Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) project that was established in 2013 between Public Health England (PHE), the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (WTSI) and Pacific Biosciences (PacBio). The project aims to generate 3000 high quality, closed reference genomes from strains within the NCTC collection.

The annotated bacterial genomes generated by the NCTC 3000 project can be accessed via:
