1.25.1 Auto Annotation libraries
The Annotations databases consists of an internal Plasmapper library provided by Genome Compiler and any custom libraries which you create. When auto annotating a project, you can select to annotate your project against the parts stored in these libraries.
Plasmapper Internal Auto Annotations ("AA") Library
Genome Compiler provide an Auto Annotation library, stored in a distinct, secured, blue "AA" folder on the cloud in the Materials Box. (Figure 18.104.22.168).
- The library is populated with hundreds of curated parts, including the most common coding sequences (CDS), promoters, terminators etc from the Plasmapper database.
- These annotations and sequences are locked but can be opened as individual projects, edited and then saved as a "copy of" the original part.
Creating Your Own Custom "AA" Libraries
- It is not possible to add annotations to the locked "AA" libraries provided by Genome Compiler, but just as with normal cloud folders, you can create your own custom "AA" folder by:
Either clicking on the cloud folder icon in the material box and selecting "Auto annotation" (Figure 22.214.171.124).
Or by right clicking in the material box and selecting "New Annotation Folder" (Figure 126.96.36.199).
Or by clicking in the "File" in the menus and then selecting "New Annotation Folder" (Figure 188.8.131.52).
- A new blue "AA" folder will then appear in the materials box (Figure 184.108.40.206).
- Right click on the folder and select "Rename."
- Only single part projects can be added and saved to custom Auto annotation libraries.
Each sequence and annotation can be opened as a regular project, edited and saved. Note: For parts saved in the custom auto annotation folders, it is not possible to open the project and then add multiple parts.
