The Arabidopsis bioinformatics team at TIGR is pleased to announce
Release 3.0 of the Arabidopsis genome annotation. Here are some
statistics for the new release:
5 chromosomes totaling 117.3 M bp
Tiling path consisting of 1578 BACs (includes PCR products and
Annotation containing 27117 protein coding genes and 1967 pseudogenes
There are 10569 gene models supported by complete cDNAs.
4291 genes have been manually curated with Gene Ontology assignments.
In comparison to Release 2.0 back in January, there are 1623 new gene
993 of these are protein coding genes:
52 of these are supported by complete cDNAs
108 have EST but not FL-cDNA matches
592 have no Arabidopsis cDNA or EST support but have a match
to the TIGR non-redundant protein database
630 of the new genes are pseudogenes
Also in comparison to Release 2.0, at least 1446 gene models were
updated to encode different protein sequences. 880 of these genes are
supported by complete cDNAs.
This latest annotation can be viewed at
<http://www.tigr.org/>www.tigr.org and will also be incorporated into
the displays at TAIR and GenBank.
All data associated with Arabidopsis Data Release 3.0 and are
available on our FTP site. The annotation data are provided on the
TIGR FTP site in XML for the individual BACs and at the chromosome
level. ASN1-formatted files for the chromosome-based annotation for
representation in NCBI's Genome database are also provided.
The BAC-based XML is only being provided for the BACS which are built
into the tiling path and used for chromosome construction.
FASTA sequences are provided for proteins, CDS sequences, and the
unspliced transcript sequences for each gene, as well as the BACs and
the newly constructed chromosome sequences.

3.0 and genes updated in release 3.0:
