Name:Bacterial Genomics 1.3
Description:Development in progress by two nodes of the French Institute of Bioinformatics, MIGALE and IFB-core
Abstract: The team of the IFB-MIGALE platform (one of the bioinformatics platforms of the IFB) developed an environment for the annotation of microbial genomes and a tool for the visualization of the synteny (local conservation of the gene order along the genomes). The platform automatically launches a set of bioinformatics tools (e.g. BLAST , PSI-BLAST , INTERPROScan ) to analyse the data and stores the results of the tools in a relational database (PostgreSQL). These tools use several public reference data collections. A web interface allows the user to consult the results and perform the manual annotation (manual annotation means adding manually metadata and biological knowledge to the genome sequence).
