IWGSC RefSeq Annotation v2.0 - call for contributions

This is a call for contributions to a new release of the Annotation of the Chinese Spring genome sequence IWGSC RefSeq.

Deadline to contribute to the 2019 Release (v2.0) is August 31.

We are currently preparing Annotation_v2.0 based on v1.1 that is currently available at INRA URGI website (published last year, IWGSC Science 2018). It is important that we integrate as many curated genes as possible from the community. So, if you have a set of genes (or even a single gene) for which you performed manual curation (correction of exon/intron structure, new alternative splice variants, new gene predicted) or if you realized that the structure of your favorite genes need corrections, please we would be happy to have your input.

If you want to contribute, please contact Hélène Rimbert and Frédéric Choulet .

In order to integrate your curated genes or your new genes, we will need that you provide a GFF file to us, as explained here

See an example of GFF provided here

You can also validate your GFF file using the gff3 validator from GenomeTool Package which is available online here

Please ensure that you annotate all the isoforms/features of your genes as every feature missing in your GFF compared to the previous release will be lost.

The deadline to contribute to the 2019 Release (v2.0) is August 31.
