Abstract

Many microorganisms produce natural products that are frequently used in the development of medicines and crop protection agents. Genome mining has evolved into a prominent method to access this potential. antiSMASH is the most popular tool for this task. Here we present version 4 of the antiSMASH database, providing biosynthetic gene clusters detected by antiSMASH 7.1 in publicly available, dereplicated, high-quality microbial genomes via an interactive graphical user interface. In version 4, the database contains 231 534 high quality BGC regions from 592 archaeal, 35 726 bacterial and 236 fungal genomes and is available at https://antismash-db.secondarymetabolites.org/.
