REST Web Service for Restauro-G

Annotations of complete genome sequences submitted directly by sequencing projects are diverse in terms of annotation strategies and update frequencies, and these inconsistencies make comparative study difficult. To allow rapid data preparation of a large number of complete genomes, automation and speed are important objectives for genome re-annotation. Here we introduce an open-source rapid genome re-annotation software system, Restauro-G, specialized for bacterial genomes. Restauro-G re-annotates the genome by similarity searches utilizing the BLAST-Like Alignment Tool, referring to protein databases such as UniProt Knowledgebase, NCBI nr, NCBI COGs, PFAM, and Psortdb. Re-annotation by Restauro-G achieved over 98% accuracy for most bacterial chromosomes in comparison with the original manually curated annotation of EMBL releases. Restauro-G was developed in the generic bioinformatics workbench G-language Genome Analysis Environment and is distributed at http://restauro-g.iab.keio.ac.jp/ under the GNU General Public License.

We here provide a REST service for this Restauro-G software.

Users of this service should also consult the original documentations of Restauro-G, and cite the following article.
