Working On

  • ORCAE: Online Resource for Community Annotation of Eukaryotes is an annotation portal to enable expert annotators to annotate in a centralized way. It has a perl backend provided as a webservice, serveral pipelining scripts to automate the task of updating. The frontend is a website made in CakePHP. Tools as Artemis and GenomeView are integrated to make updating gene models a breeze.

Teaching
