Easy and reliable parasite genome annotation.
A new Companions instance is available as the University of Glasgow. It has more resources and we hope to update the reference base. Further, it is generate reduncancy.
Annotation of a new genome could be as easy as uploading your scaffold sequences (FASTA, EMBL, GenBank), choosing a reference (from our set of 61 species) and pushing a button!
The pipeline spans many aspects of new genome production, from pseudochromosome contiguation, structural and functional gene annotation over comparative analyses to visualization.
Annotation results are typically ready in a couple of hours. Submit multiple jobs at once and we will keep you up to date about the progress of your jobs.
Data-generating components of the pipeline are built on time-tested de facto standard software.
Want to tweak the pipeline or perform large-scale annotations on your compute cluster? Get Nextflow, the pipeline code under the hood and the Docker dependencies and run the whole workflow on your own machine!
