Non-model organism – annotations in Bioconductor

It took me couple of days of searching the web and trying to build my own annotation database for non-model organism, before I’ve realized that Bioconductor already has a mechanism that automates the whole process.

In this particular example, I needed to build an annotation database for tomato, Solanum lycopersicum. Here are the steps needed to build it automatically:

Now, you can make downstream functional analysis of microarrays or something. Source code available as gist.
