Now in Glasgow
To further develop Companion, we implemented a new instance at the University of Glasgow. The server has more resources, so jobs should run twice as fast.
Annotation results are typically ready in a couple of hours. Submit multiple jobs at once and we will keep you up to date about their progress.
Annotation of a new genome could be as easy as uploading your scaffold sequences (FASTA, EMBL, GenBank), choosing a reference and pushing a button!
The pipeline spans many aspects of new genome production: from pseudo-chromosome contiguation, structural and functional gene annotation, through to comparative analyses and visualization.
for the lastest developments and updates.
Data-generating components of the pipeline are built on time-tested de facto standard software.
