I have an assembled genome obtained from oxford nanopore reads. How can I perform a basic annotation to obtain a genbank file? What tools are available to perform eukaryotic genome annotation.

I had previously used RAST for bacterial genome annotations, can I use this tool for eukaryotic genoem annotation as well?

Thanks in advance !!

Take a look at MAKER. If you have a transcriptome available then: GAWN - Genome Annotation Without Nightmares

Afaik, you cannot use RAST because it doesn't support eukaryote gene models and uses only homology within bacteria as evidence.

Have you polished the genome extensively (eg with medaka, racon?). Else your annotation will suffer from false frameshifts in reading frames due to indel errors. Even after polishing this is a big problem.
