This full annotation run includes the following assembly(ies):

The ruminant goat is a member of the even-toed ungulates family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world. Because of its long history of domestication, there are many different breeds which vary in size and weight, muscle mass, milk production, hair color and length, and horn shape and size . Goats are sexually dimorphic. Males have a beard, horns, a rank odor, and are generally larger than the females. Goats are inquisitive and intelligent; they have been trained to pull carts and are observed exploring inedible objects such as cans, buttons, or cloth.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the genome assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include annotated genes and transcripts, Gnomon-predicted gene and transcript models, aligned transcript and genomic sequences, RefSeq scaffolds (the 'Contig' map), the assembly tiling path (the 'Component' map), and more. For some species, additional non-sequence maps such as Genetic maps, Radiation hybrid maps, and others may be available.
