Many comparative genomic studies try to get a grasp on the overall gene content of a species. However, with the current explosion of available genomic data, it becomes more complex to use all-vs-all genome comparison approaches. Over the last years,
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is a major source of variability in prokaryotic genomes. Regions of Genome Plasticity (RGPs) are clusters of genes located in highly variable genomic regions. Most of them arise from HGT and correspond to Genomic Islands (GIs).

In order to extend the range of tools available to MicroScope users, we aim to develop the platform functionalities dedicated prediction, annotation and exploration of genomic regions. These genomic regions include specialized gene clusters (ie, encoding for secretion systems, CRISPR
Cyanobacteria are an ancient lineage of photosynthetic bacteria, which are prolific producers of secondary metabolites. Hundreds of bioactive compounds with diverse chemical structures , such as toxins and molecules of pharmaceutical interest, have been characterized from cyanobacteria.
