This package contains the complete taxonomic tree of almost all microorganisms from the authoritative and comprehensive Catalogue of Life.
This package contains the complete taxonomic tree of almost all microorganisms (~70,000 species) from the authoritative and comprehensive Catalogue of Life (http://www.catalogueoflife.org). The Catalogue of Life is the most comprehensive and authoritative global index of species currently available.

All ~61,000 (sub)species from the kingdoms of Archaea, Bacteria, Chromista and Protozoa
All ~8,500 (sub)species from these orders of the kingdom of Fungi: Eurotiales, Microascales, Mucorales, Onygenales, Pneumocystales, Saccharomycetales, Schizosaccharomycetales and Tremellales. The kingdom of Fungi is a very large taxon with almost 300,000 different (sub)species, of which most are not microbial (but rather macroscopic, like mushrooms). Because of this, not all fungi fit the scope of this package and including everything would tremendously slow down our algorithms too. By only including the aforementioned taxonomic orders, the most relevant fungi are covered (like all species of Aspergillus, Candida, Cryptococcus, Histplasma, Pneumocystis, Saccharomyces and Trichophyton).
All ~150 (sub)species from ~100 other relevant genera from the kingdom of Animalia (like Strongyloides and Taenia)
All ~23,000 previously accepted names of all included (sub)species (these were taxonomically renamed)
The complete taxonomic tree of all included (sub)species: from kingdom to subspecies
The responsible author(s) and year of scientific publication
The Catalogue of Life (http://www.catalogueoflife.org) is the most comprehensive and authoritative global index of species currently available. It holds essential information on the names, relationships and distributions of over 1.9 million species. The Catalogue of Life is used to support the major biodiversity and conservation information services such as the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List. It is recognised by the Convention on Biological Diversity as a significant component of the Global Taxonomy Initiative and a contribution to Target 1 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.
The syntax used to transform the original data to a cleansed R format, can be found here: https://github.com/msberends/AMR/blob/master/data-raw/reproduction_of_microorganisms.R.
On our website https://msberends.github.io/AMR/ you can find a comprehensive tutorial about how to conduct AMR analysis, the complete documentation of all functions and an example analysis using WHONET data.
