This dataset presents the Trichogramma pretiosum gene set BCM_v_0.5.3. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Trichogramma pretiosum genome assembly 1.0.
About the i5k Workspace@NAL
The i5k Workspace (https://i5k.nal.usda.gov) is an inclusive genome portal for any arthropod genome project that would like to make use of our resources. We provide download services, BLAST, the JBrowse genome browser, and the Apollo manual curation service. Over 50 arthropod genomes are now part of the i5k Workspace, and users are encouraged to browse the genomes that we host, and contribute to the curation of each genome. For more information about the i5k Workspace, you can read our paper on the i5k Workspace, view our posters and talks, and find our software projects on github. The Ag Data Commons is now hosting a growing number of i5k Workspace datasets.
About the i5k initiative
The i5k initiative is a transformative project that aims to sequence and analyze the genomes of 5,000 arthropod species. The National Agricultural Library has partnered with the i5k initiative to create the i5k Workspace@NAL, which serves any ‘orphaned’ arthropod genome project's hosting needs. For more information about the i5k initiative, read the paper and visit the website.
The Baylor College of Medicine has sequenced and annotated the Trichogramma pretiosum genome as part of the i5k pilot project. This dataset presents the Trichogramma pretiosum genome v1.0. This assembly version is the pre-release version, prior to filtering and quality control by the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GenBank resource. Scaffold 109 was identified to be a complete Wolbachia genome, and was removed from the assembly on GenBank and relocated to a separate record (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/NZ_CM003641.1).
