The ITS2 Database holds information about sequence, structure and taxonomic classification of all internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) in GenBank. ITS2 can now be searched with a modified BLAST considering both sequence and structure, enabling rapid taxon sampling. Novel sequences can be annotated using the HMM based approach and modelled according to multiple template structures. Sequences can be searched for known and newly identified motifs.
