Phage Resources

Bioinformatic resources

Galaxy – A server for bioinformatics analysis tools. Allows many tools to be chained together into complex workflows

CPT Galaxy – Galaxy instance

Online analysis tools – A useful repository of links to online bioinformatic tools for DNA and protein sequence analysis.

PhAnToMe – A collection of genome annotation tools and methods.

PHAST – A tool that locates and annotates putative prophage elements within prokaryotic genomes. Can analyze both annotated genomes (GenBank format) or raw FASTA format DNA sequence.

Prophinder – Analyzes annotated sequences for the presence of putative prophage elements; also contains a database of pre-analyzed genomes present in the NCBI database.

Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center – A suite of Java-based tools for analysis of viral genomes.
