Exploring the Entire Tree of Life
Tree simplified from NCBI taxonomy
This 'large public' tree is a reduction of the whole NCBI taxonomy. It only shows species (no strains, environmental samples, unidentified species, etc.). It displays a descritption and picture retrieved from Wikipedia when clicking on the tips and nodes.
The NCBI taxonomic tree
represents the relationships between all species/strains that have at least one sequence in the NCBI/Entrez database. It is curated and validated by expert taxonomists and is updated regularly.
