MicroScope: Genome browser improvement

The Genome Browser has been updated to enhance visibility of genomic objects. In the viewer you can notice that the central part is now grey to separate the reverse strand from the direct one. In this central part are represented  repeat regions as well as genomic object (tRNA, rRNA, misc_RNA, tmRNA, ncRNA, IS, misc_feature, promoter) which use strand (+1/-1) attribute instead of frame.

New Virulence Detection functionalities in MicroScope

Virulence gene detection by BLASTp has been integrated on the MicroScope platform.

The database is based on VFDB, VirulenceFinder and E. coli reference data.
In order to ease the functional interpretation of the results, a virulence factor classification from VFDB was attributed to each gene as frequently as possible. Additional virulence factors have also been added to VirulenceFinder and E. coli entries.

Virulence results are also available in the gene annotation result section and in the search by keywords tool.

Some other enhancements have been made:
-    UniProtKB BLAST results have been updated
-    Blast search now displays the query length

Please report us any bugs you may meet.
