Annotation Overview

IMGAG Annotation Pipeline

The International Medicago Genome Annotation Group (IMGAG) was established to coordinate the generation of a reference genome annotation for the model legume Medicago truncatula. Under the supervision of the project Steering Committee, the aim of IMGAG is to provide high quality automated gene prediction and annotation for all finished sequences generated by the Medicago genome sequencing project.

Illumina Pipeline

As part of the Annotation project, the assembled Illumina contigs were annotated in-house, by the JCVI Plant Genomics group. As more sequence data becomes available, the contig assembly will be improved and anchored onto the pseudomolecules, subsequently transferring the annotation as well.
