ready Online Resource for Community Annotation of Eukaryotes


General Information
The Online Resource for Community Annotation of Eukaryotes (ORCAE) is an online genome annotation resource offering users the necessary tools and information to validate and correct gene annotations. It is a gene-centric wiki-style annotation portal offering public access to a wide variety of plant, fungal and animal genomes. The basic setup of ORCAE is highly comparable to wiki systems such as MediaWiki, and the information page for each gene can be seen as a ‘topic’ page of a traditional text wiki.
