Vertebrate and Genome Annotation Project

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Vertebrate and Genome Annotation (Vega) project provides manual curation of vertebrate genomes for the scientific community [1]. The Vega data repository is publicly available, regularly updated and includes annotations of several finished vertebrate genome sequences: human, mouse, zebrafish, pig and dog [2].

The Vega website is built upon the Ensembl codebase [3]. The Vega database is run and developed by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
