News/MAKER-P: an annotation pipeline for plants

Jump to: navigation, search

The popular MAKER annotation pipeline has been extended and optimised to allow the annotation of plant species:

Sequencing diverse plant species of evolutionary, agricultural, and medicinal interest is becoming routine for even small groups; genome annotation and analysis is much less so. The MAKER-P pipeline is designed to make the annotation of novel plant genomes tractable for small groups with limited bioinformatics experience and resources, and faster and more transparent for large groups with more experience and resources. The MAKER-P pipeline generates species-specific repeat libraries, as well as structural annotations of protein coding genes, non-coding RNAs, and pseudogenes.
