Paper on our new Type (Strain) Genome Server published in Nature Communications

Many years of work have now finally concluded in the publication of our TYGS platform in Nature Communications.

Executive summary

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.
