Eukaryotic Genome Annotation and Analysis @ JGI
Over 40 eukaryotic genomes have been annotated using JGI Annotation Pipeline, which combines several gene prediction and annotation tools. Predicted genes and annotations are accessible via interactive visualization tools integrated into JGI Genome Portal. The diverse set of annotated genomes represents the major branches of the tree of life and provides basis for comparative genomics analysis. This comparative analysis as well as analysis of available experimental data (ESTs, microarrays, proteomics) enable validation of predicted genes. In addition, community-driven manual curation of predicted genes and functions in annotated genomes further improves their quality.
