Comparative Annotation Toolkit (CAT) – simultaneous annotation of related genomes

November 20 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
BE-330, Engineering + Google Map

Dissertation Defense - Ian Fiddes (BME) Mon Nov 20, 2017 11:30am – 2:30pm Pacific Time Location: BE-330, Engineering Abstract: The recent introductions of low-cost, long-read and read-set sequencing technologies coupled with intense efforts to develop efficient algorithms have made affordable, high-quality de-novo sequence assembly a realistic proposition. The result is an explosion of new, ultra contiguous genome assemblies. To compare these genomes we need robust methods for genome annotation. I describe Comparative Annotation Toolkit (CAT), an annotation pipeline which provides…

The result is an explosion of new, ultra contiguous genome assemblies. To compare these genomes we need robust methods for genome annotation. I describe Comparative Annotation Toolkit (CAT), an annotation pipeline which provides a flexible way to simultaneously annotate entire…
