Welcome to the Microbial Genomes Atlas XSEDE Gateway
MiGA@XSEDE is the latest extension of the Microbial Genome Atlas (MiGA). MiGA is designed to be the genome-equivalent of projects like the Ribosomal Database Project (RDP) and SILVA. In addition to serving as a repository, MiGA provides data and tools to classify and catalog microbial genomes and perform gene diversity analysis against publicly available reference genomes. MiGA@XSEDE super-charges the functionality of MiGA through the use of an XSEDE Supercomputer.
The MiGA Project contains various interactions tailored for different needs. MiGA Online allows browsing interactively the databases and the results, and it's oriented towards more "manual", high-quality inspection of results. The MiGA@XSEDE Science Gateway doesn't have any browsing/exploring features: you only upload genomes and download results. However, it has additional computing capabilities: A much larger input size, the possibility of calculating all-vs-all distances and indexing entire databases, and batch upload/download. This is meant for more automated, high-through processing of data.
MiGA is the result of a collaboration between the Kostas Lab (Georgia Institute of Technology) and the RDP team (Center for Microbial Ecology, Michigan State University). The MiGA project is funded by the US National Science Foundation (Awards #1356288 & #MCB190042). MiGA@XSEDE infrastructure is provided by XSEDE, with support from Indiana University and the Apache Airavata project.
