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.

[Resolved] Unscheduled interruption of all services

Submitted by vloux on

Update 21h15 :

Good evening,
the majority of the services are operational again :
- storage access and command line access to the  compute cluster
- web services : Galaxy , Rstudio, Rshiny , Easy16s

However, the sudden power outage had an impact on some equipment that does not restart or still has system errors:
- Calculation nodes n100, n103, n48
- PVE2 virtualisation Server

Tutorial for using FROGS on the command line

Submitted by orue on

A tutorial dedicated to the use of FROGS using its command line interface on the migale server is proposed here : https://tutorials.migale.inrae.fr/posts/frogs-16s/. From a public dataset (Illumina 16S V3-V4), you will be able to run the full FROGS pipeline to create a BIOM file containing the OTUs, their abundances and their taxonomic affiliations.
