Genome Assembly

Genome Assembly is the process of using DNA sequencing data to generate a representation of bases contained in chromosomes or the full genomes of an organism in the proper order and orientation.

Genome Annotation

Genome Annotation has two separate but related definitions but is often used to mean both:

  1. The process of identifying the location of genes by predicting the coding regions in a genome and generating gene models that represent the structure of a gene (start, stop, intron-exon boundaries, regulatory sequences, repeats).

  2. The process of assigning a function to the gene models (gene names, protein products, domain structure)
