The National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) provides draft whole genome sequences of mainly endangered species in FASTA format, as research outcomes from the Project for the Promotion of Environmental Genomics Studies. Data on the website is created by Biodiversity Division, NIES.

Analyses in this project were partially supported by the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund (Project ID: SII-1/JPMEERF18S20100).
