Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

This week Dr. Bonnie Hurwitz from University of Arizona will demonstrate the iMicrobe platform that runs on CyVerse:

This presentation is intended for researchers working on the human, animal, or Earth micro-biome who are interested in using state-of-the-art web-based bioinformatics tools and computational technologies. iMicrobe, a Powered-by-CyVerse project, provides unique, user-defined datasets that can be sent to a variety of 'omics-related apps that deliver data products and visualizations. Data products are stored in the user’s CyVerse account for further analyses or download. In this webinar, we'll learn how to use the iMicrobe federated infrastructure, including the enhanced ‘metadata search feature, apps built into biocontainers to enable reproducibility, and published workflows that can be forked and edited for personalization.

Bonnie Hurwitz is an Assistant Professor of Biosystems Engineering at the University of Arizona and a BIO5 Research Institute Fellow. She has worked as a computational biologist for nearly two decades on interdisciplinary projects in both industry and academia. Her research on the human/earth microbiome incorporates large-scale 'omics datasets, high-throughput computing, and big data analytics towards research questions in “One Health.” In particular, Dr. Hurwitz is interested in the relationship between the environment, microbial communities, and their hosts. Dr. Hurwitz is well-cited for her work in computational biology in diverse areas from plant genomics to viral metagenomics with over 1700 citations.
