IslandPick is currently very dependent on an in-house MySQL database of all published genomes, and is optimized for use on our computer cluster. Although it would require a significant amount of effort for a casual user to install, we still believe in open access to our software. Therefore, those researchers with sophisticated bioinformatics backgrounds are welcome to view and use our source code, which is available under a GPL license here.

In addition to the software, our published genomic island datasets can be downloaded here.

We encourage any researchers with special requirements for IslandPick to contact us.
