Welcome to Chewie-NS’s documentation!¶
Chewie-NS is a web-based wg/cgMLST allele Nomenclature Server, based on the TypOn ontology, that integrates with the chewBBACA suite to provide a centralized service to share, download or 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:
- Providing 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 at https://tutorial.chewbbaca.online/! The tutorial will allow users to learn how to interact with Chewie-NS.
Tutorial instructions are available at the Step-by-step Tutorial!
