Microbial Genome Annotation Network (MGAN) The Microbial Genome Annotation Network (MGAN) is a partnership between academic institutions across the U.S. and the Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute to provide undergraduates with a contemporary and inexpensive authentic research experience in microbial genome annotation and comparative analysis. The Western NY Genetics in Research and Health Care Partnership is one of a number of groups using GENI-ACT to annotate microbial genomes at the high school, undergraduate and graduate level.
