MicroScope platform

The MicroScope platform is an integrative resource that supports systematic and efficient revision of microbial genome annotation, data management and comparative analysis. Starting from the results of our syntactic, functional and relational annotation pipelines, MicroScope provides an integrated environment for the expert annotation and comparative analysis of prokaryotic genomes. It combines tools and graphical interfaces to analyze genomes and to perform the manual curation of gene function in a comparative genomics and metabolic context. The resource provides data from completed and ongoing genome projects together with post-genomic experiments (i.e. transcriptomics, re-sequencing of evolved strains, mutant collections) allowing users to improve the understanding of gene functions.

The MicroScope platform is constantly evolving both in terms of data content and of new analysis tools some of them being developed in the context of our research projects.
