MicroScope services (integration of new genomic data) will be closed from December 19th 2020 to January 4th 2021. User support will also be very limited during this period. The LABGeM team wishes you a happy holiday season.
Since 2004, MicroScope has offered a genome analysis service to a large community of microbiologists. The current resources of MicroScope are largely provided by the CEA and the CNRS through the funding of permanent staff and IT resources with the
After the cancellation of 2020 trainings due to the Covid-19 crisis, we are pleased to inform you about MicroScope professional training courses in 2021. Two sessions of the «Annotation and analysis of prokaryotic genomes using the MicroScope platform» course are planned
This year, we worked on improving the genome integration request service. The main new functionality is that the request to update the assembly of a genome, previously transmitted by e-mail, can now be made online using the Delivery of Service Management page
Two novel interactive graphs have been added to the RNA-seq analysis page to summarize, control and explore more deeply the Differentially Expressed Gene (DEG) results. A colored horizontal bar chart displays global statistics for the selected comparison(s). A MA-plot displays
The version 3.14.2 of the platform is now deployed: A new method for the prediction of KO numbers based on KofamScan has been integrated. Read more here. Note that this method allows the prediction of EC numbers. Therefore, the prediction
Two unrelated bugs have recently been fixed concerning BLAST results. The first was missing results in some workflows (e.g. Virulome). This concerned very few results when identical HSPs were detected. The second one affected the output of the BLAST search
The v3.14.1 of the platform is now deployed: The features (starts, compositional features) and experimental data (gene essentiality, SNP, In/Dels, etc.) of a Genomic Object are now presented in a dedicated section in the Gene Annotation window (instead of being
The v3.14.0 of the platform is now deployed: The main new functionality is that the request to update your genomes, previously transmitted by email, can now be made online via the Delivery of Service Management page in your user panel.
The v3.13.5 of the platform is now deployed. As announced the new address of MicroScope is now https://mage.genoscope.cns.fr. The main changes are: More characters are allowed in the gene annotation page and invalid characters are better detected before validation. The
Recent years have seen the explosion of sequencing projects leading to a deluge of several hundred thousand genomes available in public sequence databases. Comparative genomics approaches in microbiology now use thousands of genomes to analyze a species. Indeed, many studies
Genome-resolved metagenomics have profoundly reshaped our understanding of the distribution, functionalities and roles of Archaea. Within the domain, major supergroups are Euryarchaeota, which includes many methanogens, the TACK, which includes Thaumarchaeaota that impact ammonia oxidation in soils and the ocean,
