This is an old revision of the document!


BiosynML project: Development of a versatile XML container format and tools to support bioinformatic analysis workflows in the field of genomics and secondary metabolite biosynthesis. It also provides a plugin for the widely used Geneious software to support biosynthetic gene cluster analysis and to interface with the popular antiSMASH platform. In addition, it serves as a bridge for gene cluster submissions using the MIBiG community standard.

The BiosynML project - presented at - is maintained by scientists from the department “Microbial natural products” at the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland HIPS.
