Internet connection

The network communication protocol used by the MGX framework has been heavily optimized to allow usage even with low-throughput connections. Thus, typical usage of the application like visualization of analysis results does not require a lot of bandwidth, although overall performance may suffer with high-latency or low-bandwidth connections. However, as sequence datasets obtained by metagenome sequencing tend to be quite large, a broadband connection is recommended at least for initial data upload to the MGX server or when exporting sequence data from a MGX project.
