  • How do you determine which a gene annotation is correct?

    Using the program Artemis, I have to get the annotation of one specific gene. I then have to do a blast search on other databases (Ecocyc, KEGG, etc.) and compare those results to Artemis (to see if the Artemis annotation is correct). If the databases do not give the same annotations for that gene, how do I decide which is correct (Artemis vs. the others)?

    Sorry if I used any of the incorrect terms, I'm an undergrad and a lot of this is new to me.

    I'm not sure that you can determine which annotation is 'correct' without doing loads of additional work.

    You would have to consider the source of the annotations, and which you would consider to be more reliable - whether it is from a manually curated database, or from a computational gene-prediction pipeline, or a mixture of both, for example.

      It is always better to start with protein sequence when you are working with an unknown gene sequence. Start with Swissprot/Uniprot/RefSeq (http://www.uniprot.org/blast/) to see if you are able to find a conserved domain (or something that looks like one) even if the rest of the sequence match is not great.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
