PLATCOM: Current Status and Plan for the Next Stages
We have been developing a system for comparing multiple genomes, PLATCOM, where users can choose genomes of their choice freely and perform analysis of the selected genomes with a suite of computational tools. PLATCOM is built on internal databases such as GenBank, COG, KEGG, and Pairwise Comparison Database (PCDB) that contains all pairwise comparisons (97,034 entries) of protein sequence files (.faa) and whole genome sequence files (.fna) of 312 replicons. PCDB is designed to incorporate new genomes automatically, so that PLATCOM can evolve as new genomes become available. PLATCOM is available at http://platcom.informatics.indiana.edu. The design goal of PLATCOM is to provide a flexible environment for comparison of genomes from the “sequence analysis perspective.” Comparison of multiple genomes is a challenging task since combining multiple tools for sequence analysis requires a significant amount of programming work and knowledge on each tool. To alleviate such problem, we...
