The PLoS ONE Prokaryotic Genome Collection is an attempt to present and highlight a number of important articles that describe whole genome sequence and/or comparative genomics of important prokaryotic organisms. We believe that this collection will be able to facilitate understanding of the biology and lifestyle of the underlying organisms not only through the content of the Research Articles, but also from the external information sources which are linked to from the original articles. Editorial oversight and coordination of the peer-review for most of the articles was provided by Niyaz Ahmed, PLoS ONE Section Editor for Genomics and Microbiology. Articles are presented in order of publication date and new articles will be added to the collection as they are published. We welcome submissions in this field.
