Bulk Annotate Genomes/Assemblies with RASTtk - v1.073


By: chenry, qzhang


Annotate or re-annotate genomes/assemblies using RASTtk (Rapid Annotations using Subsystems Technology toolkit).

This KBase annotation App (Bulk Annotate Genomes/Assemblies uses components from the RAST (Rapid Annotations using Subsystems Technology) toolkit [1,2,3] to annotate prokaryotic genomes, to update the annotations of genomes, or to perform computations on a set of genomes so that they are consistent.

The release versions of the RASTtk component services used in this app are:

The Bulk Annotate Genomes/Assemblies App takes genomes and/or assemblies as inputs and allows users to annotate or re-annotate the genomes and/or assemblies. This will make the annotations consistent with other KBase genomes and prepare the genomes for further analysis by other KBase Apps, especially the Metabolic Modeling Apps. A Genome object can be generated by uploading a GenBank file, importing a GenBank file from NCBI via FTP, retrieving a Genome-typed object from KBase, or using the output of the Annotate Microbial Assembly App.

The newly annotated genomes will be included in a GenomeSet object with the user specified GenomeSet name, with each individual RAST-annotated genome named by its corresponding input genome/assembly name prefixed with the GenomeSet name.
