Genome annotation: which tools do we have for it?

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1999 Apr;2(2):90-5. doi: 10.1016/S1369-5266(99)80019-3.


Genome data have to be converted into knowledge to be useful to biologists. Many valuable computational tools have already been developed to help annotation of plant genome sequences, and these may be improved further, for example by identification of more gene regulatory elements. The lack of a standard computer-assisted annotation platform for eukaryotic genomes remains major bottle-neck.
