Training : «MicroScope Platform – Advanced course»

In an effort to inform members of the research community about our annotation methods, to provide training for collaborators and other scientists who use the MicroScope platfom, and to inform scientific public on the analysis available in PkGDB (Prokaryotic Genome DataBase), we have developed a 2-day course “MicroScope Platform – Advanced course” aimed at presenting the last developments of the MicroScope platform.


  • Overview of the evolution of the MicroScope platform
  • Presentation of new key features of the MicroScope platform
  • Presentation of tools dedicated to RNA-seq analyses
  • Focus on features dedicated to the exploration of bacterial metabolism

  • Pre-requisite: training ‘Annotation and analysis of prokaryotic genomes using the MicroScope platform’
  • Maximum number of trainees: 12 


Day 1

  • Recent and future developments of the MicroScope platform
  • Submission and data management by project coordinators
