NCBI's Eukaryotic Annotation Pipeline has now annotated the genomes for 100 different organisms!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

NCBI began annotating eukaryotic genomes in 2000. We have now completed the genome annotation for 100 different organisms, including 50 mammals, 25 other vertebrates, 17 invertebrates and 8 plants. Among these 100 organisms, 47 were annotated for the first time in 2013. The lucky 100th organism is the Chinese alligator (Alligator sinensis).

Recent improvements in the Eukaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline have not only increased the throughput but have also improved the quality of the annotation produced. For example, incorporation of RNASeq data for use in gene prediction has permitted the annotation of organisms with little traditional transcript or protein sequence. View annotation runs recently completed or in progress.

Data produced by the Eukaryotic Genome Annotation Pipeline is available in the Reference Sequences (RefSeq) collection, BLAST non-redundant and organism-specific databases, Gene database, and on the NCBI FTP site.
