Addressing sequencing notes

| posted 28 Jan, 2020 17:51
M. foliorum phage Jerky has this sequencing note:
The sequencing reads indicate that in ~40% of the phage population from which DNA was extracted, there is a deletion of 45 bp from 13248 to 13292, inclusive.
Should this be addressed in the annotation? We are just getting started, so we don't know yet if there is something interesting there.

Hi Amy,

You don't need to directly address it during your annotation, but it can be interesting to work with the students and see how that might affect the protein(s) in question. We also add those sequencing notes as sometimes they can help explain an odd phenotype (turbid AND clear plaques, e.g.).
