IGS Training Workshops

IGS offers several short courses on a range of bioinformatics and 'omics topics.

Funding Source

We gratefully thank the National Institute of General Medical Sciences for funding this project.


Recently, sequencing costs have dropped sharply due to increased throughput, simplification, and affordability of second (or even third and fourth) generation sequencing technologies, leading to an explosion of smaller sequencing facilities. However, despite the increased rate of sequence generation, there has not been a commensurate increase in access to computational resources to support high-quality sequence processing and analysis. The Annotation Engine has been effective in providing prokaryotic annotation services to the community for four years, however the analysis needs of researchers now far exceed prokaryotic genome annotation. Therefore we have expanded the analysis pipelines offered in our service to include comparative genomics and transcriptome analysis. We have renamed our service the Analysis Engine. Work is underway to further increase the types of analyses included in the service as well as to increase the interoperability of our tools with other popular bioinformatics tools.

Free Prokaryotic Analysis Engine Services

Custom Analysis

If you have analysis needs beyond what are offered in the free services listed above, please contact us to discuss the needs of your project. We can provide custom analyses (for both prokaryotes and eukaryotes) on a fee-for-service basis.

How to reference use of the IGS Analysis Engine in your publication

We ask that anyone using the IGS Analysis Engine for their work include that information in the Materials and Methods section and to acknowledge us in the Acknowledgements section. Thank You.
