[…] l tools. While four of the analyzed tools - JST [], MHC-PRG [], PanCake [], and vg [] - provide methods for adding or removing genomes from the pan-genome data structure, only GenomeRing [], JST [], panVC [] and vg [] offer the ability to annotate biological features. This is often caused by the representation of the pan-genome as graphs, for which there is no standard method providing a coordina […]
