A total of 20,203 protein-coding genes and 17,871 non-coding genes were annotated.
The number of annotated curated transcripts increased by 17% and genes with two or more curated alternative variants increased by 8%.
The annotation includes 6,862 features and 2,075 GeneIDs for non-genic functional elements, such as regulatory regions and known structural elements. For example, see the opsin locus control region (OPSIN-LCR).
In October of last year, we announced the replacement of NCBI’s Map viewer with the Genome Data Viewer (GDV). Here are some additional details on how to access to the older Map Viewer FTP content going forward and some information to help you with the transition to GDV.
As we announced last fall, we are no longer updating the data content of Map Viewer FTP directories. To help avoid any confusion over the meaning of the directory names, we will alter the CURRENT and PREVIOUS directories under the species directories in the Map Viewer FTP area so that they no longer point to data. However, the existing data will still be available on the FTP site.
The Genome Data Viewer (GDV) is now the main genome browser at NCBI replacing the Map Viewer, our original genome browser. GDV is a modern genome browser with essential improvements over Map Viewer. These include sequence-level details and an automated update process that keeps up with the rapid pace of genome sequencing, assembly and annotation.
