Annotation: What's new in 2014-15?

The revised DNA Master Annotation Guide is available on PhagesDB and the sea-wiki.  Below are some important revisions to note.

  • The process for submitting genomes for annotation QC has changed slightly.  You are asked to submit two .dnam5 files.  Particular attention to functional calls is needed.
  • Start-site decision-making has been modified to use the Karlin/Kaplan scoring matrices (NOT DNA Master SD scores).
  • Starterator: A new program is available for evaluating start-site options in the context of similar phages/genes.
  • GeneMark’s servers were hacked, so program choices have changed.
  • NCBI BLAST parameters have changed, so BLASTing whole genomes requires additional care.
