DIYA: a bacterial annotation pipeline for any genomics lab

Bioinformatics. 2009 Apr 1;25(7):962-3. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp097. Epub 2009 Mar 2.


DIYA (Do-It-Yourself Annotator) is a modular and configurable open source pipeline software, written in Perl, used for the rapid annotation of bacterial genome sequences. The software is currently used to take DNA contigs as input, either in the form of complete genomes or the result of shotgun sequencing, and produce an annotated sequence in Genbank file format as output.
