Bushbaby assembly and gene annotation


OtoGar3 is a high coverage assembly for bushbaby (Otolemur garnettii). The combined WGS and BAC-end sequence reads were assembled This whole genome shotgun assembly was produced from Illumina short-read sequence data using ALLPATHS-LG assembly software developed by the Broad Institute.

The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer. The N50 size of scaffolds is 13.852kb. The total of all scaffolds is 2.519Gb.

The genome assembly represented here corresponds to GenBank Assembly ID GCA_000181295.3

Gene annotation

The gene set for bushbaby was built using the Ensembl pipeline.

Gene models are based on genewise alignments of bushbaby and primate proteins as well as genetically distant proteins from other species, including most vertebrate proteins from Uniprot. Additionally, human ensembl translations were aligned using exonerate and genewise. The protein based gene models were then extended using human cDNA. In addition to the coding transcript models, non-coding RNAs and pseudogenes were annotated.
