Consideration of non canonical splice sites improves gene prediction on the Arabidopsis thaliana Niederzenz 1 genome sequence

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 5716242
PMID: 29202864
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-017-2985-y

[…] Calculation of gene prediction statistics as well as comparison to the Col-0 annotation via identification of RBHs was carried out by custom Python scripts as previously described []. ParsEval [] was applied to compare the GeneSet_Nd1_v1.0 and GeneSet_Nd1_v1.1 in more detail. […]


PacBio assembly of a Plasmodium knowlesi genome sequence with Hi C correction and manual annotation of the SICAvar gene family

PMCID: 5798397
PMID: 28720171
DOI: 10.1017/S0031182017001329

[…] on was selected, and the AUGUSTUS score threshold was set to 0·5.To evaluate the gene models produced by the MAKER2 and Companion approaches, a comparison between both annotations was performed using ParsEval (Standage and Brendel, ). The unique genes identified by each approach were selected for manual curation using Artemis (Rutherford et al. ). To assign functional annotation to the predicted p […]


Seqping: gene prediction pipeline for plant genomes using self training gene models and transcriptomic data

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5333190
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1426-6

[…] to accurately identify gene structure. The predicted rice genes from Seqping were also independently verified using a different approach. Comparison of the Seqping models to the MSU annotation using ParsEval [] yielded 87.70% shared gene loci. These results indicate that Seqping had the best prediction for the rice genome. […]


Proteogenomics produces comprehensive and highly accurate protein coding gene annotation in a complete genome assembly of Malassezia sympodialis

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5389616
PMID: 28100699
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx006

[…] The previously published annotation () was transferred to our new genome assembly using the liftOver program () and then compared to our current annotation using ParsEval (). A chain file for liftOver was constructed by aligning the old and new genome assemblies with BLAT and processing the alignments according to the instructions on the UCSC Genome Browser wi […]


The neurotranscriptome of the Aedes aegypti mosquito

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4704297
PMID: 26738925
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-2239-0

[…] include the top 10) are listed in Additional file . To determine the proportion of transcripts that were updated as compared to the VectorBase annotations (Fig. ; AaegL2.1 and AaegL3.3), we used the parseval tool in the AEGeAn package to compare gff3 annotation files [].We note that due to the evolving nature of annotations in Ae. aegypti and the fact that our orthology relies only on a single sp […]
