Dear MicroScope users, Due to an administrative decision by the CEA to impose a two-weeks closure of research activities in response to the covid-19 outbreak, MicroScope services for the integration of new genomes and transcriptomics data will be closed from
The v3.14.0 of the platform is now deployed: The main new functionality is the 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
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
Dear MicroScope users, For technical reasons, we will soon change the address used to access MicroScope from your web browser: the current address will be replaced by https://mage.genoscope.cns.fr/microscope on Wednesday February 26th at 2:00PM CEST. At this date, the current
We are pleased to inform you about MicroScope professional training courses in 2020. Two sessions of the «Annotation and analysis of prokaryotic genomes using the MicroScope platform» course are planned at the University of Evry.
The secondary metabolite gene cluster prediction tool antiSMASH has been updated to version 5 on the MicroScope platform. This new version includes updated and extended cluster identification profiles, and allows to detect 52 types of Biosynthetic Gene Clusters (BGCs).
CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) arrays and their associated (Cas) proteins confer bacteria and archaea adaptive immunity against exogenous mobile genetic elements, such as phages or plasmids. CRISPRCasFinder a program that allows the identification of both CRISPR arrays and Cas proteins has been integrated into MicroScope.
Dear MicroScope users, We recently published an article describing the new functionalities in MicroScope to appear in the 2020 Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue. Please use this article when citing MicroScope. Thanks in advance,The LABGeM Team.
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).
