What are Annotations?

  • An Annotation in Genboree is a coordinate range on a defined Entry Point (such as a chromosome).
    • Examples include: exons, chromosome bands, mapped BACs, repeat regions, promotor sites, base-conservation scores, etc.
  • Genboree also has the concept of Annotation Groups, which are sets of linked annotations that are best displayed via group-aware drawing styles.
    • For example, the exons of a gene transcript should always grouped together.
    • Other examples include mate-pair reads, the HSPs of a significant BLAST/BLAT hit, etc.
