About the project
The goal of this database is to provide an up-to-date overview of all currently identified host galaxies of accurately-localized fast radio bursts (FRBs). It is hosted by the Fast and Fortunate for FRB Follow-up (F^4) team and serves as a front-end interface for the host galaxy data and measurements delivered by our official GitHub repository: https://github.com/FRBs/FRB GitHub
This database is intended for new users who wish to review the current status of galaxies associated with FRBs and to provide a simple and easy way to extract the basic host galaxy properties of all the to-date known FRB hosts.
To acknowledge the use of this database, please:
- Cite the original paper(s) providing the data or measurements presented here. References can be found under each individual FRB entry.
- Cite the main FRB host galaxy paper where this webpage was first introduced (Heintz et al. 2020, arXiv: 2009.10747).
- Add a footnote to the FRB host galaxy database URL (frbhosts.org)
We appreciate any comments or suggestions to the contents of this webpage. We also encourage the community to send information on any new host galaxy detections or complementary data of hosts already presented here. Any comments should be sent to Kasper E. Heintz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The F4 team would like to thank Ask Sejsbo and the AstroSites developers for setting up the structure and layout of this webpage.
