Type Strain Genome Server

Q: Do I have to include type strain genomes in my TYGS submission?

In default mode, the TYGS will already determine a set of closely related type-strain genomes per each of your provided genomes. The exact procedure is described in the TYGS publication. If you are still uploading type strain genomes, this will of course result in duplicate genome sequences throughout your results because your uploaded genomes will perfectly match with the respective type-strain genome from the TYGS database. In case you have clicked the checkbox 'Restrict job to above genome(s)?', the TYGS will skip the determination of closely related type-strain genomes entirely and only focus on the genome sequences and accessions you have provided via the submission form.
