Project context and summary :

The tool MacSyFinder and the viewer MacSyView provide a framework to model macromolecular systems in genomes, allow their precise detection, and their visualisation in genomic context. These tools were co-developped by Sophie Abby, Bertrand Néron, Hervé Ménager, Marie Touchon and Eduardo Rocha. MacSyFinder has been the subject of a demand for a US patent by the Institut Pasteur. The aim of the project is to increase the value and accessibility of these tools by designing a web interface, and giving the possibility to run MacSyFinder on a remote server in Pasteur, with a set of predefined model systems, or with user-supplied models. This will make these tools more easily accessible by a broad audience of biologists.
