The EMERGE Database Project

Welcome to the EMERGE Database (EMERGE-DB), a cross-disciplinary database designed to store the data generated and analyzed by the NSF-funded EMERGE Biology Integration Institute. The goal of the EMERGE Institute is to discover how microbial communities mediate the fate of carbon in thawing permafrost landscapes under climate change. The EMERGE-DB expands upon the IsoGenie Database (IsoGenieDB), which was built for the EMERGE Institute's predecessor, the DOE-funded IsoGenie Project.

The EMERGE-DB is a Neo4j graph database that integrates its data in a queryable framework. The code used for importing data into the EMERGE-DB is open source, and is available on our Bitbucket page.

For a detailed overview of the database and its capabilities, please see the following manuscript:
