Sign up for a CyVerse account

A key feature of CyVerse cyberinfrastructure is that one set of credentials (your CyVerse username and password) connect you to all CyVerse platforms.

Note: During the transition from iPlant Collaborative to CyVerse, you will see platforms independently being updated with new logos and color schemes. No actions are required on your part; these changes will not alter system functionalities.

Sign up from user portal

  1. Visit the user portal at:
  2. Register for a CyVerse account
  3. Check your email for an account confirmation link and follow the confirmation instructions.

Tips: - Register using your .edu, .org, or .gov email address (access to some platforms may be restricted for non-institutional users).
- Choose a short, easy-to-remember username. Username must be lowercase and have at least 3 characters. First character must be a lowercase letter. May only contain lowercase letters, numbers, dashes and underscores (_).
- Choose a very secure password. Never give this password to anyone.
- Students can and should create their own accounts.

Requesting access to additional CyVerse platforms and services

  • Atmosphere - The CyVerse cloud platform where you can create custom Linux-based virtual machines or use existing ones (your account must be linked to an .edu email address to register).
  • Bisque - A platform for managing images and their metadata that allows you to analyze image data in more than 100 file formats.
  • CoGe - The Comparative Genomics platform gives you access to thousands of genomes and a variety of tools for genome analysis.
  • DNA Subway- DNA Subway makes high-level genome analysis broadly available to students and educators, and provides easy access to the types of data and informatics tools that drive modern biology. Using the intuitive metaphor of a subway map, DNA Subway organizes research-grade bioinformatics analysis tools into logical workflows and presents them in an appealing interface.
  • TARGeT - An advanced pipeline for the detection of transposable elements.
