ISGA at the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics

Integrated Services for Genomic Analysis (ISGA) is an Ergatis-based bioinformatics pipeline service based at Indiana University's Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics. ISGA is also a free, open-source software package that you can install locally to provide a biologist-friendly web interface to your computational resources. ISGA currently provides prokaryotic annotation and prokaryotic assembly pipelines and offers an intuitive interface for biologists to run and customize pipelines. ISGA also integrates tools such as GBrowse and Blast for visualizing and analyzing pipeline results. Since ISGA utilizes the Ergatis workflow system to execute pipelines, ISGA pipeline can be submitted back to the Ergatis community and other Ergatis pipelines can be adapted to use ISGA. (See Ergatis Update below for what's new with Ergatis.)

For more on ISGA, see the manuscript "An Ergatis-based prokaryotic genome annotation web server" in Bioinformatics, the ISGA pipeline and account tutorials, and the ISGA FAQ page. For help using or installing ISGA, join the isga-users mailing list.
