About MiGA @ XSEDE

Introduction to MiGA @ XSEDE

What is it and when to use it?

MiGA @ XSEDE is the deployment of the Microbial Genomes Atlas (MiGA) into the infrastructure of the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). The objective of MiGA @ XSEDE is to provide end users with a web-accessible implementation of MiGA for high-throughput analyses. For example, if you have a collection of hundreds of genomes to be analyzed by MiGA, but don't have the local infrastructure to perform these analyses, this is the best option for you.

MiGA @ XSEDE provides high-throughput access to MiGA without local deployments

What can I expect from MiGA @ XSEDE?

There are several applications in MiGA @ XSEDE. For all of them, the general process consists of uploading one or more datasets (genomes or metagenomes), submitting a job, and waiting for processing to complete. Once complete, you'll be able to download a single tarball package including all the results, their summaries, and a static local HTML file so you can explore the files with your own web browser.

How else can I use MiGA?

MiGA is available in many environments. For example, if you want to be able to interactively explore all the results of each genome, we recommend using MiGA Online instead.

Alternatively, if you are concerned with sensitive data leaving your premises, you can deploy MiGA Codebase locally, even creating you own local MiGA Web server.
