Easy and reliable genome annotation.
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.
Annotation results are provided in validated GFF3 format for gene model and product annotations, and GAF format for GO associations.
for the lastest developments and updates.
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!
