NG6 was hacked at the end of April 2021. We analyzed the file system and the logs and we immediately corrected the vulnerability (new NG6 install,¬†strengthened security...). No indications were found regarding password or data exfiltration, but the hackers had the capability to do so. Even though the passwords are strongly encrypted in the database, we encourage all users having created their account before May 2021 to update their password, especially if it is too weak (not long enough...) :¬†https://genomique.genotoul.fr/e-SIToul-ResetPassword/mail.¬†
Sorry for any inconvenience.

NG6 v3.2 is available on https://forgemia.inra.fr/genotoul-bioinfo/ng6/tags. Illumina pipelines were greatly improved (less time to make the data and analysis results available). An Oxford nanopore Technologies pipeline is now available. Can now work with slurm and sge. All runs come with a md5 sum file for raw data. New interface to manage projects and purge associated data is now included.
August 30 2017
From now, Illumina data generated by GeT-PlaGe core facility and loaded in nG6 will include the flowcell barcode in the fastq.gz file names, in order to made them unique accross all runs.

NG6 v2.0 is now available. This new version is based upon the jflow workflow engine instead of ergatis. This version is comming with several new features for runs administrators.

NG6 is now only available in english.

New user management system. 3 rights levels: administrator (in charge to run workflows), manager (in charge to manage project access) and member (browsing projects/runs/analyses).
Next generation sequencing platforms are now well implanted in sequencing centres and some laboratories. Smaller
scale machines such as the 454 junior from Roche or the MiSeq from Illumina will increase the number of laboratories
hosting a sequencer. In such a context, it is important to provide these teams with an easily manageable environment
to store and process the produced reads. NG6 is a complete information system designed to answer the needs of a sequencing
platform. It provides a user-friendly interface to process, store and download high-throughput sequencing data.
