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 associated facility 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 get familiar with tools, best 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.

After more than 18 months without any system administrator, we are very pleased to welcome Damien Berry from January 2020. He was previously system administrator in the INRAE MIAT laboratory in Toulouse. His first task will consist in reorganizing the centralized storage of Migale.

Welcome Damien !

A new Florilege release

Submitted by orue on

Florilege is a database of habitats, phenotypes and uses of food microbe flora. It aims to gather, in a unified representation, public information on food microbes with a focus on positive flora (microorganisms involved in transformation, bioconservation or probiotics).
