Welcome to Chewie-NS’s documentation!
The main instance of Chewie-NS is available at chewbbaca.online.
Chewie-NS is a web-based wg/cgMLST allele Nomenclature Server, based on the TypOn ontology, that integrates with chewBBACA to provide a centralized service to share and update schemas, allowing the easy sharing of results, while ensuring the reproducibility and consistency of these steps.
With this service we have the following main goals:
Provide a public and centralised web service to manage typing schemas.
Establish a common nomenclature for allele calling.
Ensure the reproducibility and consistency of wg/cgMLST analysis.
Chewie-NS has a tutorial website available here! The tutorial server allows users to learn how to interact with Chewie-NS.
A step-by-step tutorial about the integration with chewBBACA is available at Integration with Chewie-NS.
