Abstract

This work presents a preliminary comparative study of some tools for mapping annotated contigs onto a close-related complete annotated genome. This kind of mapping could help scientists in generating additional sequences to fill in gaps in finishing genome projects, or even in getting relevant functional information, specially when annotations of the complete genome and contigs are available.
