Annotation of UTRs?

Am I right to presume that annotation of D. elegans and D. biarmipes is again coding-sequence only? If there's time at the end of the semester we'll go on to try to annotate TSSs, which will require some UTR mapping, so I wonder if we should annotate the UTRs as well right now.

The TSS annotations are optional for both the D. elegans and D. biarmipes projects. The current TSS annotation protocol recommends that your students should try to annotate the initial transcribed exon before trying to annotate the TSS. However, your students do not need to annotate all of the untranslated exons (UTRs) for a given gene.
