Functional Annotation

These apps allow users to import and utilize external genome annotations that can be combined with annotations created by KBase apps such as DRAM, Prokka, or RASTtk.



These apps take Genomes with annotations as input.

See Assembling & Annotation Microbial Genomes for more on annotating genomes.


A demo Narrative, Importing annotation sources for metabolic modeling, provides and example of the workflow using a Streptomyces coelicolor strain A3(2) and annotations created in KBase and with 3rd party tools.

  • This Narrative was created and made available by Patrik D'haeseleer of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

The public tutorial Narratives Microbial Genomics in KBase: Drafting Isolate Genomes and Microbial Metabolc Model Reconstruction and Analysis Tutorial provide guidance on related workflows.
