Software & Data

We can help you!

Some of our recent research has involved using our CEGMA software pipeline to study the many whole genome shotgun (WGS) genome sequences that are being produced. In a recently submitted manuscript that looks at the utility and completeness of WGS genomes, we have shown that the genome annotations that accompany genome sequences frequently miss important, and highly-conserved genes. As a free service, we will run our CEGMA pipeline software against any (eukaryotic) genome sequence to:
