A user guide for the Prototype release of the Annotation Files Merger. The Annotation Files Merger is designed to help you combine individual files generated by the Gene Model Checker into a single project file that is suitable for project submission.
This walkthrough illustrates the GEP protocol for the comparative annotation of transcription start sites (TSS) in D. biarmipes. The walkthrough also includes a sample GEP TSS Report for the TSS annotation of onecut.
Dr. Hui-Min Chung (University of West Florida) has posted a series of 4 worksheets which can be used as a basic introduction to BLAST and annotation. These are very basic and suitable for use prior to the GEP annotation homework #1 and #2.
This exercise continues your introduction to practical issues in comparative annotation. You will be annotating genomic sequence from the dot chromosome of Drosophila mojavensis using your knowledge of BLAST and some improved visualization tools. You will also consider how best to integrate information from high-throughput sequencing of expressed RNA.
An introductory exercise using BLAST to annotate a region in the Drosophila melanogaster genome. Students can use this exercise to gain familiarity with performing BLAST searches and interpreting BLAST output. An answer key is provided for instructors.
