Why is Genome Annotation important?

Genome annotation is no simple feat, but it’s incredibly important in identifying the functional elements of DNA. Building the appropriate tools and pipelines is key.

The Earlham Institute (EI) is a hub of life science research, training, and innovation focused on understanding the natural world through the lens of genomics. Our mission is to unravel the scale and complexity of living systems so we can understand, benefit from, and protect life on Earth.
