MAGPIE (multipurpose automated genome project investigation environment) provides genomes with an automated platform for collecting computed data about an emerging or finished genome sequence. Once installed, two daemons run side by side: one collects data through a multitude of automated requests to remote and local servers, and the other synthesizes collected data into a "knowledge base" of queryable information. MAGPIE, which was created at Argonne National Laboratory by Terry Gaasterland, in collaboration with Christoph Sensen of the Canadian NRC Institute for Marine Biosciences, includes a prepackaged set of queries that generate hierarchically organized reports about the genome sequence data.
The MAGPIE site (http://genomes.rockefeller.edu/research.shtml) also lists the status of genome sequencing projects and links to genome databases at other institutions and to metabolic and functional pathway resources.
