We constructed a web-based genome annotation platform, MarinegenomicsDB, to integrate genome data from various marine organisms including the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata and the coral Acropora digitifera. This newly developed viewer application provides open access to published data and a user-friendly environment for community-based manual gene annotation. Development on a flexible framework enables easy expansion of the website on demand. To date, more than 2000 genes have been annotated using this system. In the future, the website will be expanded to host a wider variety of data, more species, and different types of genome-wide analyses. The website is available at the following URL:
