I really like RAST...it's extremely easy to upload freshly-assembled genomes and get the quick and dirty info on them. Anyone could use this, including people with no genomics experience. It also serves as a great way to keep my genomics data on hand at all times from any computer. My only big issue is that their public genome database is too limited for my purposes (bifidobacteria) so their "identify related organisms" tool is useless to me. I have to upload most of the reference genomes I need myself.
