Database Description

The goal of the Genome Reviews project is to provide an up-to-date, standardised and comprehensively annotated view of the genomic sequence of organisms with completely deciphered genomes.

Genome Reviews are curated versions of EMBL/GenBank/DDBJ database entries. Each Genome Review represents an enhanced version of the original sequence, with additional annotation imported from other data sources such as the UniProt knowledgebase, the GOA (GO Annotation) project, InterPro etc. In addition, annotations used inconsistently among the original submissions have been standardised, and deleted in cases where the coverage is low, making it easier to compare data across several genomes.


The Genome Reviews project is funded by the TEMBLOR grant (QLRI-CT-2001-00015) of the European Commission under the RTD programme 'Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources’.
