Whole Genome Analysis of Leptospira licerasiae Provides Insight into Leptospiral Evolution and Pathogenicity

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 3493377
PMID: 23145189
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0001853

[…] y , and Gene Ontology (GO) terms to each protein in the genome. Each protein was assigned a descriptive common name coming from an HMM name, a JCVI database of experimentally characterized proteins (CharProtDB) , or from a best BER match protein. Proteins predicted to encode enzymes were assigned EC numbers, JCVI role categories, GO terms and gene symbols (e.g., “recA”) as appropriate. The autoAn […]


The 2012 Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue and the online Molecular Biology Database Collection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3245068

[…] basis of the human protein set in the UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot and then expanded by including quality-assessed protein expression, localization, variation and proteomics data (). Other highlights include CharProtDB, a database of experimentally characterized proteins that is used for genome annotation at the J. Craig Venter Institute (); a detailed explanation of the basic principles behind the NCBI T […]


Meeting report: a workshop on Best Practices in Genome Annotation

PMCID: 2860899
PMID: 20428316
DOI: 10.1093/database/baq001

[…] e derived from a combination of highly trusted evidence types, which provide consistent, accurate and complete annotation. Evidence types include manually curated experimentally verified genes in the Characterized Protein Database (CHAR), applied annotation rules and trusted protein families [e.g. TIGRFAMs ()]. JCVI developed CHAR, a database designed to bring together sequence, synonymous accessi […]
