The Excel icon on the top right in Figure 1 allows exporting the table in csv format.

The Filter option allows to limit the table to a specific rage of dates.

The following features that run on the BioBam Bioinformatics Cloud Platform are:

  • Functional Analysis: CloudIPS (paid), CloudBlast (paid), GO Mapping, EggNOG, Annotation

  • Transcriptomics: Trinity*, BUSCO, TransDecoder, CD-HIT, STAR*, BWA*, RSEM*, EdgeR, maSigPro, NOISeq

  • Metagenomics: Kraken, MEGAHIT, meta-SPAdes, FragGeneScan, Prodigal, PfamScan, EggNOG Mapper

  • Genome Analysis: Flye,* ABySS*, SPAdes*, Pilon*, BWA*, RepeatMasker, Augustus, Glimmer

  • Apps: CPAT, PSORTb, MLST

  • These algorithms make use of free cloud computation resources. This is an introductory offer and may change in a future release depending on the overall resource consumption of these features.
