  • program to automatically annotate a DNA sequence

    Is there some good software to automatically annotate a DNA sequence? I'm dealing with a specific situation right now, but it would be nice to have a general tool that just takes a DNA sequence and automatically annotates it well based on information from databases. In my situation right now, I am looking at chimeric transcripts in cancer cells where two transcripts from different genes are fused together. Therefore, I get a sequence, blast it, find out which part matches with transcript A, find out which part matches with transcript B, and then I annotate it using APE (Advanced Plasmid Editor) to mark which part of the sequence corresponds to transcript A and B, the start codon, the stop codon. I can then acquire some useful information such as the protein produced, and the protein sequence after the fusion point. Anyway, does anyone have a good recommendation for automatically annotating DNA sequences?

    Blast2GO is pretty good for that, I don't think it will identify fusion transcripts though.

      Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
      by seqadmin


      Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
      by seqadmin


      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
