Identifying long terminal repeats (LTR) and non-LTR retroelements in eukaryotic genomic sequences.
This is a Tool Publishing server.
- ENA Browser or local storage is used to obtain input genome sequences including a traditional file upload. HMMER 3.1b1 is applied to gain speed boosts compared to a previous version HMMER 2+. In addition Generic Feature Format Version 3 is used for visualization of genome sequence data via a web-based genome browser e.g. UCSC Genome Browser or Ensembl Genome Browser.
- MGESCan is also accessible through Amazon Cloud (EC2), Galaxy Tool Shed or Published Workflow on the public galaxy server (usegalaxy.org)
- MGEScan can be used anonymously or with a login. Anyone can create a login.
