DIYA, the Do It Yourself Annotator is now officially a part of GMOD. DIYA is a modular and configurable open source pipeline framework, written in Perl, used (initially) for the rapid annotation of microbial genome sequences. The software is currently used to take nucleotide sequence contigs as input, either in the form of complete genomes or the result of shotgun sequencing, and produce an annotated sequence in GFF format. Current development seeks to integrate DIYA with the AMOS collection of assembly tools.

DIYA resides in Sourceforge, where it has mailing lists and a blog, and uses Trac for development tracking. DIYA is stable and version 1.0 has been released.

DIYA is part of the Do It Yourself Genomics (DIYG) Project. Developers of DIYA (and DIYG) include Andrew Stewart and Brian Osborne (formerly of the GMOD Help Desk). The DIYA community is looking for interested developers to contribute to DIYA. See the DIYA page for more.
