CLC Microbial Genomics Module empowers microbiologists to take full advantage of whole genome or metagenomic data. Uncover and compare the taxonomic and functional composition of microbial communities, or use the pathogen typing functionality to confirm the identity and characteristics of pathogens. Investigators can study outbreak trees in the context of epidemiological sample information, where pathogen information, data, and results can all be managed from one convenient Outbreak Dashboard.
Leverage the power of whole genome sequencing to accurately determine the type and other characteristics of microbial isolates.
Whether you wish to confirm the identity of a starter culture, monitor food-borne pathogens, or establish an association between an outbreak and its source, there are many reasons why microbiologists characterize microbial isolates. Whatever your task is, CLC Microbial Genomics Module is designed to help you accomplish it.Pathogen typing and outbreak investigation
In 2015, 80% of the genomes published on NCBI RefSeq were microbial genomes. Tens of thousands of microbial genomes are expected to be sequenced annually, tendency growing. In microbiome research the numbers of metagenomic datasets being generated are growing even faster.
With CLC Genomics Server you can scale up as much as necessary and run data analysis on your server or high performance computer with ease. The Microbial Genomics Server Extension ensures that all tools you need can be simply plugged into the CLC Genomics Server.How to scale up
For the general requirements, please refer to the relevant CLC Workbench system requirements.
Special requirements for the Taxonomic Profiler
Running the Taxonomic Profiler with a 14 GB database requires a minimum 16 GB RAM, and running with a 56 GB database requires a minimum of 64 GB RAM. When creating your reference database with the Create Microbial Reference Database tool, you will get a warning about the memory requirements needed for running the Taxonomic Profiler with this database.
Special requirements for De Novo Assemble Metagenome It is recommended to have at least 16 GB RAM when running the De Novo Assemble Metagenome.
Special requirements for the PCoA 3D Viewer
Special requirements for third party tools
Tools using DIAMOND and ShortBRED require CPU with an AVX instruction set.
We frequently release updates and improvements such as new functionalities, bug fixes or plugins. To get a complete overview, please read the latest improvements.
