Using GenSAS

GenSAS utilizes user-friendly interfaces and embedded instructions to guide the user through the annotation process. This User Guide will describe the use of each section in more detail. Please also see the video tutorial section (coming soon).

GenSAS performs structural and functional annotations of whole genome assemblies or single DNA sequences.  If you have never performed DNA annotation, we recommend reading "A beginner's guide to eukaryotic genome annotation" as a starting point to familiarize yourself with the overall process.  GenSAS requires user-interaction for the annotation process.  We have included very basic descriptions of how to use the tools which are integrated into GenSAS, but if you would like to know more specifics about each tool, please see the "Available Tools" table on the homepage and visit the websites for the tools to see detailed documentation.
