The Genome Annotation Assessment Project tested current methods of gene identification, including a critical assessment of the accuracy of different methods. Two new databases have provided new resources for gene annotation: these are the InterPro database of protein domains and motifs, and the Gene Ontology database for terms that describe the molecular functions and biological roles of gene products. Efforts in genome annotation are most often based upon advances in computer systems that are specifically designed to deal with the tremendous amounts of data being generated by current sequencing projects. These efforts in analysis are being linked to new ways of visualizing computationally annotated genomes.
