Manual annotation is a great way to stay productive and engage undergraduates when you are not able to do research in the lab. The i5k Workspace@NAL has many genomes open for manual annotation, and we can set up our resources for your favorite (public) genome if we don't host it yet. 

Get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions! https://i5k.nal.usda.gov/contact or i5k@ars.usda.gov
