@ Argonne National Laboratory
The PATRIC/RAST teams will be offering a tutorial on 2017-August 14-16, at Argonne National Laboratory
in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. The workshop will run for three days, with the third day optional and devoted solely to participants working
on their own problems with help from the PATRIC/RAST team members. Included will be genome assembly, annotation, comparative analysis,
and variation, as well as metabolic model construction, RNA-Seq analysis, Tn-seq analysis, and phylogenetic tree construction. Registration
information is available HERE,
and the planned agenda is available HERE.
The workshop will be limited to 35 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
@ ICSB 2017
PATRIC will be hosting a 1-day workshop entitled "The PATRIC Bioinformatics Resource Center for 'Omics Data Analysis,"
at the 18th International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB 2017) on August 6, 2017 on the Virginia Tech University campus in Blacksburg, VA.
The workshop will cover PATRIC's analysis pipelines, which include genome assembly and annotation, RNA-Seq analysis, variation analysis,
and tools for comparative genomic analysis. PATRIC provides researchers with the ability to analyze their private data directly
with any of the available public data. The registration page for ICSB is HERE,
and registration is open until August 3, 2017.
PATRIC Crosses 100,000 Genomes Mark
In the May 2017 release, PATRIC has added over 7,700 new genomes,
bringing the total number of public genomes in PATRIC to approximately 105,000. This is a notable milestone
for the project considering that the database contained only 400 bacterial genomes at the end of 2009 when
PATRIC launched the all bacteria Bioinformatics Resource Center. The full list of available bacterial genomes
can be accessed from the Genomes Tab for all bacteria in the PATRIC website.
Antibiotic Resistance Data
for Infectious Disease Research
Antibiotic Resistance refers to the ability of bacteria to develop resistance to antibiotics
through gene mutation or acquisition of antibiotic resistance genes. PATRIC collects
known antibiotic resistance genes from reputed external databases and publications and maps
them to homologous genes using BLASTP, so you can easily find and analyze them with PATRIC
tools. We also incorporate antibiotic susceptibility testing results as additional
Supporting the TB Research Community
THROUGH NEW TB@PATRIC RESOURCES
PATRIC announces new web-based features designed to serve TB researchers worldwide. This
resource provides fast searching and powerful comparative analysis tools for all Mycobacterium
tuberculosis genomes, including the H37Rv reference genome, its variants and other
members in the tuberculosis complex. Also included are important reference genomes, M.
smegmatis and M. marinum.
