BackgroundThe number of prokaryotic genome sequences becoming available is growing steadily and is growing faster than our ability to accurately annotate them.DescriptionWe describe a fully automated service for annotating bacterial and archaeal genomes. The service identifies protein-encoding, rRNA and tRNA genes, assigns functions to the genes, predicts which subsystems are represented in the genome, uses this information to reconstruct the metabolic network and makes the output easily… Expand

Evaluation of Three Automated Genome Annotations for Halorhabdus utahensis
TLDR
This work submitted the genome sequence of halophilic archaeon Halorhabdus utahensis to be analyzed by three genome annotation services to compare the methodology and effectiveness of the annotations, as well as to explore the genes, pathways, and physiology of the previously unannotated genome. Expand
AGeS: A Software System for Microbial Genome Sequence Annotation
TLDR
The results indicate that the software tools integrated into AGeS provide annotations that are in general agreement with those provided by the compared methods, as demonstrated by a >94% overlap in the number of identified genes, a significant number of identical annotated features, and a >90% agreement in enzyme function predictions. Expand
SEED Servers: High-Performance Access to the SEED Genomes, Annotations, and Metabolic Models
TLDR
The SEED Servers are developed, four network-based servers intended to expose the data in the underlying relational database, support basic annotation services, offer programmatic access to the capabilities of the RAST annotation server, and provide access to a growing collection of metabolic models that support flux balance analysis. Expand
The SEED and the Rapid Annotation of microbial genomes using Subsystems Technology (RAST)
TLDR
The interconnectedness of the SEED database and RAST, the RAST annotation pipeline and updates to both resources are described. Expand
BG7: A New Approach for Bacterial Genome Annotation Designed for Next Generation Sequencing Data
TLDR
BG7 is a fast, automated and scalable system that can cope with the challenge of analyzing the huge amount of genomes that are being sequenced with NGS technologies and could be very easily adapted to work with new technologies in the future. Expand
Companion: a web server for annotation and analysis of parasite genomes
TLDR
The Companion web server is developed providing parasite genome annotation as a service using a reference-based approach and the use and performance is demonstrated by annotating two Leishmania and Plasmodium genomes as typical parasite cases and compared to manually annotated references. Expand
Solving the Problem: Genome Annotation Standards before the Data Deluge
TLDR
NCBI in collaboration with sequencing centers, archival databases, and researchers, has developed the first international annotation standards, a fundamental step in ensuring that high quality complete prokaryotic genomes are available as gold standard references. Expand
GAMOLA2, a Comprehensive Software Package for the Annotation and Curation of Draft and Complete Microbial Genomes
TLDR
The release of GAMOLA2, a user friendly and comprehensive software package to process, annotate and curate draft and complete bacterial, archaeal, and viral genomes, which represents a wrapping tool to combine gene model determination, functional Blast, COG, Pfam, and TIGRfam analyses with structural predictions. Expand
Using comparative genome analysis to identify problems in annotated microbial genomes.
TLDR
It is discussed and demonstrated how the methods of comparative genome analysis can refine annotations by locating missing orthologues and shown that the second-generation annotation systems, which combine multiple gene-calling programs with similarity-based methods, perform much better than the first annotation tools. Expand

Annotation of bacterial and archaeal genomes: improving accuracy and consistency.
TLDR
This review deals with the status of gene identification in prokaryotes and the task of predicting the function to be associated with protein-coding genes, and a key point is that maintenance and improvement of annotations originate in expert analysis and are reflected through protein family curation, since the “curate genomes” activity is seldom done.
