Work Package 5: Annotation and storage of NGS data

Objectives

One of the challenges that arise when a new genome is sequenced (or re-sequenced) is to generate a comprehensive annotation of functionally relevant genomic elements and to be able to access these data in an efficient, user-friendly and discovery enabling way. In this WP we will develop analysis and database structures to process and store genomics data that can be broadly use in different biological scenarios. Projects such as GENASUR (CONICET), CANDELA (UNIVERSITY COLLEGE L) and CITRUSSEQ (CIPF) and biodiversity CINVESTAV projects will nurse this WP. The objectives are to:

O5.1 Join partners expertise to create a shared platform for structural, variant and functional annotation of genomes.

O5.2 Create visualization and querying tools to explore the biological and evolutionary meaning of the data.
