DAWGPAWS is a tool for discovering the location of the genes and transposable elements in eukaryotic genomic sequences. It is distributed as a suite of command line programs that are designed to assist a Distributed Annotation Working Group (DAWG) in the annotation of genomic sequence contigs. These programs generate the multiple tracks of annotation evidence that can be computationally combined or manually curated to generate gene models and richly annotated transposable element predictions. The computation of the annotation evidence tracks can be distributed across nodes in a high-performance computing environment providing a scalability that makes this a Pipeline to Annotate Whole-genome Sequences (PAWS). The flexibility of evidences that can be generated by DAWGPAWS allows it to be applied to any eukaryotic genome annotation effort.
