FARAO is the Flexible All-Round Annotation Organizer, a set of software tools that constitute as a highly configurable way to handle sequence annotation and coverage information. FARAO 1) integrates annotation and coverage information for the same sequence set; 2) is scalable to millions of sequences and features; 3) can filter out sequences with annotations satisfying criteria given by the user; 4) handles annotations produced by a range of bioinformatics tools; and 5) provides a flexible interface for writing custom parsers for virtually any format not supported out of the box.
