How do I add a gene name (symbol) to a NEW gene model I just created?


Use the "Gene Information Capture" web form following this link. The gene ID should be the same as the one you used in the NEW Web Apollo gene model. It should be unique. We suggested using "yourusernameX", where 'X' would be a number, e.g., ggiraldo1. Use Web Apollo Information Editor with the only purpose of giving a name to the gene, please leave all the other fields of the Editor empty.

Then fill in the rest of the VectorBase web form as you would normally for an existing gene model. Follow this link for instructions of how to do that.

Please follow this link for the FAQ about gene IDs.
