BIG-FAM database: The Biosynthetic Gene Cluster Family (GCF) database is an online repository for "homologous" groups of biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) putatively encoding the production of similar specialized metabolites. By taking large-scale, global collections of BGCs identified from currently available genomes and MAGs as a data source, BiG-FAM provides an explorable "atlas" of microbial secondary metabolic diversity to browse and search biosynthetic diversity across taxa. BiG-FAM facilitates querying putative BGCs to rapidly find their position on the diversity map and gain a better understanding of their novelty or (probable) functions, based on relationships with other known and predicted BGCs from publicly available data.
