Blattella germanica Official Gene Set OGSv1.0

The Blattella germanica genome was recently sequenced and annotated as part of the i5k pilot project by the Baylor College of Medicine. The Blattella germanica research community has manually reviewed and curated the computational gene predictions and generated an official gene set, OGSv1.0. The general procedure for generating this OGS is outlined here: https://github.com/NAL-i5K/GFF3toolkit/. QC of community-curated models from the Apollo software was performed using the GFF3toolkit function gff3_QC.py, and errors were fixed using gff3_fix.py. OGSv1.0 was generated by merging the gene set BGER_v0.6.2 (provided by E. Jongepier, doi:10.1038/s41559-017-0459-1) with 1) QC'd and error-corrected community-curated models and 2) semi-automatically predicted miRNAs (references: doi:10.1038/srep37736 and doi.org/10.1186/s12864-017-4177-5) . Subsequently, i5k Workspace (https://i5k.nal.usda.gov/) IDs were generated for all features.
