Our Research and Approach

Until the group closed in 2017, the team provided provide the software and data used for the manual curation of genomic annotation by the vertebrate annotation group. Many of the different components, especially the interactive, graphical desktop applications, can be used separately from the team's system, thanks to their use of standard file formats for their input.

The group's tools included the Otter analysis pipeline, the ZMap genome display engine, the SeqTools sequence visualization package, and the AceDB genome database system.

Dr Ed Griffiths
Group Leader

I was the team leader of the Annosoft team, we wrote software to support vertebrate annotation at Sanger but we also supported and worked with other annotation groups in other laboratories e.g. Wormbase, Ensembl. We wrote tools that were aimed at experienced annotators, they fillled a gap left by the many browser-based viewers that existed at the time.
