IWGSC Annotation Workshop at PAG 2019

IWGSC Wheat Genome Manual and Functional Annotation Workshop at PAG 2019

The workshop examined advances in functional annotation of regions in the reference genome sequence regions which will include gap closure and finishing the genome sequence as well as the functional annotation of the gene space. Generally the regions examined will be in agronomically important regions and we would expect new bioinformatics developments to accelerate the integration of multiple data sets. The IWGSC phase II strategy, post the release of the wheat reference genome (IWGSC RefSeq v1.0), includes developing a pipeline for community generated manual annotation coupled, functional annotation, and annual annotation releases by the IWGSC. The workshop focused on genome-level studies to facilitate manual and functional annotation, the process of manual annotation, and platforms for annotation and visualization.
