Bioinformatics Databases

To save your storage quota and to unload our file system a bit, we offer some bioinformatics databases in an openly readable folder on Saga. We try to keep them updated, but if you find them to be outdated, please write us at

All of databases for the following programs can be found on Saga under /cluster/shared/databases/.

  • Bowtie2: database coming shortly

  • EMBL database excluding human & environmental records

  • NCBI taxonomy database

  • ecoPCR database reformatted for the ecotag step of OBITools pipeline
