Tiger Team: tt-antismash

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 [1]. BiG- MEX searches for Biosynthetic Gene Cluster (BGC) domains and classes in metagenomic data [2]. 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 [3] and patches the existing wrapper scripts, such that the scripts use the converted Singularity images.
