NCTC 3000 is a collaborative Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) project that was established in 2013 between Public Health England (PHE) (now known as the UK Health Security Agency), 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 either via the collaborative website, directly from the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) or by searching the list of NCTC strains below by name:
So far 1700 strains have been sequenced; more sequences will be addded to the list as they become available.
