Welcome to bacannot pipeline documentation
Bacannot is a pipeline designed to provide an easy-to-use framework for performing a comprehensive annotation on prokaryotic genomes. It is developed with Nextflow and Docker. It can annotate resistance genes, virulence factors, genomic islands, prophages, methylation and more.
The pipeline's main steps are:
|Analysis steps||Used software or databases|
|Genome assembly (if raw reads are given)||Flye and Unicycler|
|Identification of closest 10 NCBI Refseq genomes||RefSeq Masher|
|Generic annotation and gene prediction||Prokka|
|Classification within multi-locus sequence types (STs)||mlst|
|KEGG KO annotation and visualization||KofamScan and KEGGDecoder|
|Annotation of secondary metabolites||antiSMASH|
|Annotation of antimicrobial (AMR) genes||AMRFinderPlus, ARGminer, Resfinder and RGI|
|Annotation of virulence genes||Victors and VFDB|
|Prophage sequences and genes annotation||PHASTER, Phigaro and PhySpy|
|Annotation of integrative and conjugative elements||ICEberg|
|Focused detection of insertion sequences||digIS|
|In silico detection of plasmids||Plasmidfinder and Platon|
|Prediction and visualization of genomic islands||IslandPath-DIMOB and gff-toolbox|
|Custom annotation from formatted FASTA or NCBI protein IDs||BLAST|
|Merge of annotation results||bedtools|
|Genome Browser renderization||JBrowse|
|Renderization of automatic reports and shiny app for results interrogation||R Markdown, Shiny and SequenceServer|
A quickstart is available so you can quickly get the gist of the pipeline's capabilities.
About prokka annotation
In order to increase the accuracy of prokka annotation, this pipeline includes an additional HMM database to prokka's defaults. It can be either TIGRFAM (smaller but curated) or PGAP (bigger comprehensive NCBI database that contains TIGRFAM).
The pipeline's common usage is very simple as shown below:
Some parameters are required, some are not. Please read the pipeline's manual reference to understand each parameter.
