Many years of work have now finally concluded in the publication of our TYGS platform in Nature Communications.
TYGS, the Type (Strain) Genome Server, is a user-friendly high-throughput web server for genome-based prokaryote taxonomy. Microbial taxonomy needs genome-based analyses but these can be complex and require expert knowledge. TYGS fills this gap. TYGS is as reliable as the GGDC but offers way more features.
