PATRIC Workshop @ ASM Microbe 2017
PATRIC will be hosting a 1-day workshop entitled "Assemble, Annotate and Analyze Your Own
Genome using PATRIC, the All Bacterial Bioinformatics Resource Center," workshop
number 001-WS at the ASM Microbes 2017 on June 1, 2017 in New Orleans,
Louisiana. The workshop will cover genome assembly and annotation, comparative
genomics, RNA-Seq and transcriptomic analysis, and calling SNPs, MNPs, and indels using
PATRIC's new Variation pipeline. The workshop will focus on analyzing researcher's
private data compared to the available public data.
Seating is limited, so please register soon if you are interested. The main ASM
Microbes 2017 registration page is here.
Note that you must register for the conference in order to sign up for workshops.
New PATRIC Website Release
Welcome to the new version of the PATRIC Website
Updates to the website include layout changes, more consistency in using PATRIC tools and
data, streamlined operations, and other enhancements. Data stored in private workspaces (for
registered users) is available from the new site - no data or user account migration is
necessary. A QuickStart video, available from the Help menu at the top of the page, provides
a brief overview of the new layout and features. You can also contact us from the Help /
Provide Feedback menu option if you have issues. We will maintain the prior version of the
website at https://www.legacy.patricbrc.org
for approximately 2 months.
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.
