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.
The v3.13.4 of the platform is now deployed. We fixed many little bugs and made some little enhancements on various pages. The only new feature is that the IP_type property for InterPro results is now available in the gene editor
Guess what ? Another round of network maintenance at Genoscope is scheduled on Wednesday November 13th between 9:00am and 2:00pm CEST. Therefore MicroScope might not be completely available during those operations. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The v3.13.3 of the platform is now deployed. Two important features were added in this version: The Macromolecular Systems page now displays CRISPR arrays found by CRISPRCasFinder. The Secondary Metabolites page has been updated to the brand new antiSMASH 5.0.
The v3.13.2 of the platform is now deployed. The main feature is the possibility to highlight a genomic region (as found for example by AntiSMASH or MacSyFinder) in the viewer. The contextual menu has 2 new options: you can explore
The v3.13.1 of the platform is now deployed. This release doesn’t introduce new features but fixes some bugs of v3.13.0 (or from older versions): the selector sometimes didn’t work in phyloprofile favourite organisms were not always properly saved the color
A new selector for sequences and organisms that extends the one previously introduced in the Genome Clustering page has been deployed in MicroScope since the end of June 2019. This selector was designed to let you choose efficiently several sequences by browsing the taxonomy or by filtering on strains with suggestions.
Delineating a set of essential genomic elements and proteins that make up a living organism helps to understand critical cellular processes that sustain life. Essential genes in a bacterium constitute a minimal genome, forming a set of functional modules, which play key roles in the emerging field of synthetic biology. A new ‘essential gene’ dataset coming from Database of Essential Genes (DEG) has been set up in MicroScope.
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).
