ARB is a graphical suite of tools for sequence database handling and data
analysis. A central database of processed (aligned) sequences and any
type of additional data linked to the sequence entries is structured
according to phylogeny or other user-defined criteria.
The ARB project (from the Latin "arbor", a tree) is a joint initiative of
the Lehrstuhl fuer Mikrobiologie
and the Lehrstuhl fuer Rechnertechnik und Rechnerorganisation of the Technical University
of Munich.
