This website is the home of MacsyDB databases
The information presented here was originally obtained using the MacSyFinder program (or earlier prototypes of this program), eventually with some subsequent curation (check the literature references below).
It allows to query a dataset of protein secretion systems, conjugative and mobilization elements, and extracellular capsules retrieved from over 2000 complete genome sequences.
- Protein secretion systems: TXSSdb
- Non-Flagellar Type III secretion systems (partly superseded by TXSSdb): Secreton
- Conjugative and Mobilization systems: CONJdb
- Extracellular capsules: CapsuleDB
The profiles and models used are freely available in our website for systematic searches in the dedicated Galaxy web server (search for txsscan, conjscan, capsulefinder tools), or in the standalone version in conjunction with MacSyFinder and MacSyView (MacSyFinder and MacSyView are also freely available on ). The documentation on these programs can be found at readthedocs.
