Our Services

Migale, one of the Collective Scientific Infrastructure of INRAE, is part of the BioinfOmics Research Infrastructure of INRAE for bioinformatics. It is also a member of IFB (Institut Français de Bioinformatique), the French bioinformatics infrastructure and partner of France Génomique, the French genomic infrastructure for which we contribute to support different developments in bioinformatics.
A free account gives you access to work and save directories for your data, and access to the computer farm for your analyses.
The cluster farm is composed of about a thousand cores organized in different queues. We use the Sun Grid Engine queuing system for managing jobs.
You have a free access to our Galaxy server. Galaxy allows non-bioinformaticians to easily run tools without technical knowledges.
Command line tools, R packages and Galaxy wrappers are available on request and accessible to all migale authenticated users.
We provide an access to a large set of public biological databanks including whole genomes, nucleic and proteic sequences and other resources. They are updated automatically with BioMaJ or upon request.
We write tutorials to help you to get a grip on tools, good practices, languages etc.
Each year, we offer our "Bioinformatics by practicing" cycle. This cycle covers a broad spectrum of bioinformatics. The modules mix theoretical part and practical work.
We answer to the most common questions regarding the technical difficulties you can go through on our infrastructure.

New article: First step of odorant detection in the olfactory epithelium and olfactory preferences differ according to the microbiota profile in mice

A collaboration with the MICALIS institute and NBO team has led to the publication of an article entitled: "First step of odorant detection in the olfactory epithelium and olfactory preferences differ according to the microbiota profile in mice"

The highlights are:

Metabarcoding Training - Roscoff

From December 2 to 6, Mahendra Mariadassou, Cédric Midoux and Olivier Rué went to Roscoff to give a training course dedicated to the analysis of amplicon metagenomic data. This training was jointly organised by IFREMER and the ABIMS bioinformatics platform.

The 25 participants were trained in FROGS (bioinformatics and bistatistics) and dada2 under Galaxy environment.

Various presentations on metabarcoding were given by Olivier Chapleur (IRSTEA, Antony), Raffaele Siano (IFREMER, Brest), Marjorie Couton (Biological Station, Roscoff) and Angélique Gobet (IFREMER, Palavas).

New Article : Bioinformatics Tools and Workflow to Select Blood Biomarkers for Early Cancer Diagnosis: An Application to Pancreatic Cancer

A new article for the ProteoRE project (Proteomics Research Environment) with our colleagues from the EdyP laboratory in Grenoble and with an IFB funding.
In this work we propose a Galaxy workflow  to select blood biomarkers for early cancer diagnosis in the case of pancreatic cancer.
