BItsliced Genomic Signature Index [BIGSI] Docs

Welcome to the BIGSI documentation. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with BIGSI as quickly as possible.

BIGSIs–BItsliced Genomic Signature Indexes–allow for efficient indexing and search in very large collections of WGS data, in particular bacterial or viral data sets WGS data sets. BIGSI can index and query raw, or assembled data.

A prebuilt index is available for download at http://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/software/bigsi/nat_biotech_2018/all-microbial-index-v0.3 or a hosted demo is available here http://www.bigsi.io/.
