Auto-annotation Fix for DNA Master

Recently, NCBI changed accessibility to Glimmer and GeneMark servers. Upon update and a few key re-configurations, DNA Master can once again auto-annotate. Please follow the directions in the attached document to get auto-annotation working again. Yay!

Annotation Forum Reorganization

An Inherent Problem with Annotation

With the constant influx of new software tools, new genomes, and new publications, the way we annotate genomes is always changing. We always know a bit more than we did last year, and often a lot more than we did 5 years ago.

This leads to an inherent problem, however ...

DNA Master Updated to Use Secure NCBI Connections

Thanks to Jeffrey Lawrence, significant changes have been made to the DNA Master code which now allow it to access the newly-secure servers of NCBI. To obtain these changes, you need to update the program. Without updating, important features of DNA Master will not work, including auto-annotation and BLASTing.

To update, open DNA Master then ...

DNA Master Under Construction

Dear All,

NCBI is upgrading its security protocols for programs that contact its servers. DNA Master uses the NCBI servers for both BLAST data and for auto-annotations. At the current time, we have been unable to upgrade DNA Master to use the new protocols, which means auto-annotations and BLASTing through DNA Master will fail.

We ...

2016 Fall Archive Tubes

Archive tubes were shipped this week. Expect them no later than Thursday, November 3, 2016.

A couple small changes to seaphages.org

Navigation Menus

Just a quick alert that sometime in the next couple of weeks, we'll be slightly changing the menus that appear at the top of seaphages.org. The current menus were just sort of tacked-together as we built the site, and so hopefully the rearrangement will be a bit more intuitive, but feedback ...
