As of August 2017, we have replaced the background annotation engine of the DFAST web service with our original pipeline called DFAST-core.
DFAST-core is also available as a stand-alone command line program, providing a local annotation platform for sensitive or mass sequence data.
For more information, please visit our GitHub repository.
Runs on Mac and Linux with Python 2.7 and 3.4-.
External binaries are bundled in the software distribution.
You can customize the pipeline by defining your own configuration file.
Less than 10 minutes for typical-sized bacterial genome annotation.
Unique functions such as orthologous gene assignment between reference genomes, pseudo/frameshifted gene prediction.
Supports fully qualified DDBJ submission files as well as .tbl and .fsa files for GenBank submission.
