Job submission interface ready to use

News

Besides phenotypic models and trait precalculations for NCBI RefSeq genomes, PhenDB also facilitates processing of user-specific data.

For this purpose, a job submission form is now available. It accepts archive files (e.g., .zip or .tar.gz), which contain genome sequences or bin sequences from metagenomic projects. Per genome or bin, one multiple fasta file is required. If the file contains genomic sequences, PhenDB automatically predicts genes by using prodigal. Otherwise, the protein sequences are used as provides.

On our compute cluster, all genomes and bins are automatically annotated and trait predictions are performed. The results are available in tables on a result page and for download.
