Incomplete Open Read Frames (ORFs) in Mikado annotation

Hello,

I used Mikado pipeline to annotate the genome of a nematoid species, using assembled transcripts. However, most of the ORFs generated by Mikado are incomplete, either lacking start or stop codons. I would like to know if there is something I could do to improve the number of complete ORFs. I used the worm.yaml configuration file.

Thanks!

How do you check if they have a start or a stop codon? When I obtain the protein sequences of the ORFs, using gffread, I see they don't start with the amino acid methionine and don't have a "dot" on the end of the sequence, which represents the stop codon on the gffread fasta output. I am sure they don't have a start and/or stop codon, I visualized them using the software Artemis.

And are you taking into account if the coordinates are 0-based or 1-based? It's 1-based.

Strange - how frequent are stop codons in the middle of the sequences?
