Parasitoid Wasps Project: Annotation Workbook

  • November 22, 2021December 1, 2021

For the Parasitoid Wasps Project gene annotation, project submission will consist of a completed Annotation Workbook, a screenshot of the user track on the Genome Browser, and sequence files for the entire transcript and encoded protein. This Annotation Workbook is an Excel file with space to fill out all the necessary information for the gene annotation.

If it is done correctly, filling out the workbook will also auto-populate a GFF file that can be used for testing the accuracy of gene models (described in the “Checking Accuracy of the Gene Model (Alternative to Gene Model Checker)” section of the “Annotation Workbook Directions“). Please note that everything should be filled out exactly as described: the vocabulary and formatting need to be very precise to make a functional GFF file.

The “Example” sheet has been completed for you to reference while completing the “Transcript” sheet.

This document provides directions for how to complete and obtain the items needed to submit a Parasitoid Wasps Project annotation—a completed Annotation Workbook, a screenshot of the user track on the Genome Browser, and sequence files for the entire transcript and encoded protein.

Parasitoid Wasps Project: Annotation Walkthrough

  • November 22, 2021November 29, 2021

This exercise will walkthrough an example of annotating a wasp venom gene for the Parasitoid Wasps Project. It will discuss wasp versions of common GEP annotation tools—Genome Browser, Gene Record Finder, and Gene Model Checker—and provide background for the interpretation of data tracks that are unique to the Parasitoid Wasps Project.
