THE AUTO-ANNOTATING PROCESS

Many labs find it useful to have a curated set of annotations that they use to annotate all their DNA. These annotations are called Features, they can be grouped and registered as canonical features, to use them on an automatic annotation process, called Auto Annotating of DNA in bulk. To start auto-annotating, go to your Sequence Library:

Next, select and right-click whichever sequences you'd like to auto-annotate:

In this example, we'll choose to add Features but the same steps would apply for Parts. You should see a pop-up window like this:

Choose one or more of the Feature Groups you want to use to annotate and hit the "Annotate X Sequences" button. If you don't have any Feature Groups yet, or if you'd like to see more information about the groups you do have, you hit the Add/Edit Feature Groups link; to learn more about this go to the Features article. Once you’ve selected the Feature Groups, you should see a message that looks something like:

After this, your DNA Sequences or Parts will be automatically annotated with the Feature Group(s) you selected.


PARTS AND FEATURES

When auto-annotating a sequence, you can use parts and/or features. DNA parts are the functional sequences you use to build designs. When you want to work with a design, TeselaGen's software can automatically find the parts you have already registered. The Parts library is pretty much similar to the DNA Sequences library, and you follow the same process to upload new parts.

On the other hand, Sequence Features can also be indicated on its corresponding library-
