DDBJ Fast Annotation and Submission Tool (DFAST) is a bacterial genome annotation pipeline integrated with quality and taxonomy assessment methods. DFAST is developed so that all the procedure required for submission can be done seamlessly on-line, thus it can be used as an on-line workspace to prepare submission files to DDBJ Mass Submission System (MSS).
You can access the Job Submission Form from "Analysis > Genome Annotation" in the menu bar.
As of August 2017, we have replaced the background annotation engine of DFAST with a newly-implemented pipeline called DFAST-core. The older pipeline, which is based on Prokka, is still available as "Legacy server".
Please note that the description shown in this page might be different from the current version, although the basic usage is the same.
You can create submission files to DDBJ Mass Subission System (MSS) here. Please follow the instruction shown in the page to create files.
Currently, DFAST supports only Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) entry (draft genome). In case of the complete genome, you have to modify the submission file by assigning sequence names (chromosome name or plasmid name) and sequence topologies (circular or linear).
Note that DFAST is not an official service of DDBJ. Please refer to the official guideline for the latest information.
