Small Genome Annotation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Genome assembly produces the raw genomic sequence of an organism. Genome annotation adds meaning to sequence by associating structural and functional annotation with specific regions (loci) on the genome. This workshop will introduce genome annotation in the context of small genomes. We'll begin with genome annotation concepts, and then introduce resources and tools for automatically annotating small genomes. The workshop will finish with a review of options for further automatic and manual tuning of the annotation, and for maintaining it as new assemblies or information becomes available.


  • A general knowledge of Galaxy (for example, you should be familiar with the material in Galaxy 101 or have attended Introduction to Galaxy).
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser.  Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
