The initial annotation of the Aedes genome is a collaboration between VectorBase and TIGR. Each group generated a set of gene predictions which were merged into a single canonical set (AaegL1.1). The geneset presented here (AaegL1.2, September 2009) represents the original set with the integration of community annotation and inclusion of additional gene predictions which were excluded from the AaegL1.1 set but subsequently found to have supporting evidence (transcriptome, mapped protein domains).
