What Can I Do @ PATRIC?

Recent News


The PATRIC/RAST teams will be offering a tutorial workshop June 7, 2018, at ASM Microbe 2018 in Atlanta, GA. The workshop will run for one day and will cover key functionality of the PATRIC system.


In this release, PATRIC has new subsystems functionality with precomputed subsystems for all PATRIC genomes as well as protein family updates. It also includes additional genome metadata with AMR panel data and new datasets from NIAID-funded centers. This release also enhancements to the Circular Genome Viewer and a new PATRIC homepage design for evaluation and review.


PATRIC provides a new Metagenomic Binning Service that accepts either reads or contigs, and attempts to “bin” the data into a set of genomes. It can be used to reconstruct bacterial and archael genomes from environmental samples. The new service will produce reports that estimate the quality of the reconstructed genome for each bin, as well as potentially problematic annotations for each of the derived genomes.

On February 28th at 3pm EST we will provide a webinar demonstrates this service. Please email rwattam@vt.edu if you plan to attend so that we will know approximately how many participants to expect. The webinar will be recorded and made available for later access.

Note: The recorded webinar is now available here: <https://docs.patricbrc.org//webinar/metagenomic_binning.html>
