CoGe is federated with CyVerse's Authentication Service. This means that in order to login to CoGe you need a CyVerse account. Once you log into CoGe, you can:

  • Load genomes and keep them private
  • Load experiments (functional and diversity data sets for genomes) and keep them private
  • Create user groups
  • Share private genomes and experiments with other users
  • Have private genomes and experiments shared with you
  • Track all your previously run analyses
  • Create notebooks to organize data and analyses

Most of CoGe's analytical tools, such as SynMap and GEvo, do not require a login to use public data.
