Deployment of antiSMASH and BiG-MEX on BinAC
antiSMASH allows the rapid genome-wide identification, annotation and analysis of secondary metabolite biosynthesis gene clusters in bacterial and fungal genomes. It integrates and cross-links with a large number of in silico secondary metabolite analysis tools . BiG- MEX searches for Biosynthetic Gene Cluster (BGC) domains and classes in metagenomic data . antiSMASH requires a diverse range of bioinformatics software, so that an installation as container is convenient. BiG-MEX does not provide a classic installation procedure, but offers various scripts which make extensive use of Docker containers. The Tiger Team converts the existing Docker images to Singularity containers  and patches the existing wrapper scripts, such that the scripts use the converted Singularity images.
Members of the Tiger-Team: Shrikant Mantri; Applied Natural Products Genome Mining Group, Universität Tübingen; Felix Bartusch, HPC-Kompetenzzentrum BinA
