GO Annotations, Methods, and Review
Making a genome sequence accessible and useful involves three basic steps: genome assembly, structural annotation, and
functional annotation. The quality of data generated at each step influences the accuracy of inferences that can be made, with high-
quality analyses produce better datasets resulting in stronger hypotheses for downstream experimentation.
Maize GAMER is a collaborative project to improve the status of gene functional annotation in maize. The project has three main areas of focus, namely
- Design a pipeline for the functional annotation of maize genes.
- Use manually curated test data to evaluate the annotations and generate a best subset of annotaions for use
- Design a user friendly review system for the community to provide feedback and endorsements of the annotations
We are always looking for alpha/beta testers for the tool. Please feel free to contact either Gokul or Carolyn to sign up.
