OGeR
Open Genome Resource
for comparative analyses of prokaryotic genomes

Welcome to OGeR

OGeR is an open source system for the storage, visualization and analysis of prokaryotic genome data. It provides a local or distributed data management solution for small and medium-sized sequencing projects.

OGeR was developed for the comparative analysis of several related bacterial genomes. It displays homologous proteins and compares adjacent intergenic regions. Homologous regions are displayed either as a map or as multiple alignments.

You can explore the functionalities of OGeR by browsing Strepto-DB, the database for comparative genome analyses of group A and group B streptococci.

You can download and run OGeR on your local linux operating system. OGeR imports the genomes of your choice in EMBL or GenBank format. The system stores genome sequences, gene/protein annotation and additional data in a relational database. You can query the database via webinterface. The system is implemented as a PostgreSQL database with an Apache/PHP frontend.

Download OGeR 32bit (v10.07) or OGeR 64bit (v10.07) and follow the installation instructions.
