OK, more updates 2017

Well, the last post was about updates, but it was more about 2016 than 2017. Here a couple graphs for your delight. One before filtering, the other after, with the counts of prokaryotic genomes in each NCBI category as of July 2017.

The four categories are: Complete, Chromosome, Scaffold, and Contigs. My filtering used to include redundant TaxIDs, but I learned that TaxIDs wasn’t a good idea. Now I filter only by strain, substrain, etc, as provided by the NCBI list of features. Not perfect, but I seem to keep most genomes.
