Gene annotation

What can I find? Protein-coding and non-coding genes, splice variants, cDNA and protein sequences, non-coding RNAs.


Preliminary gene annotation for the western painted turtle was generated by aligning Ensembl proteins from chicken and green anole lizard using data from Ensembl release 66, as well as by aligning 12 painted turtle proteins from UniProtKB. With a cut-off of 60% identity and 90% coverage for the chicken proteins, and 60% identity and 85% coverage for the lizard proteins, we have predicted 9858 models based on the chicken proteins, and 10722 models based on the lizard proteins. The UniProtKB proteins gave rise to 28 predicted transcripts. In addition, ab initio Genscan gene predictions and BLAST alignments of sequences from several public databases (e.g. UniGene, EMBL Vertebrate RNA, UniProtKB) are available. Please note that the gene predictions shown here do not represent a final Ensembl gene set.
