Community Annotation

Greetings Arabidopsis researchers!

Welcome to the Araport Community Curation Portal. The portal uses Web Apollo which has a JBrowse interface and allows users to edit gene models based upon various sources of evidence available as browser tracks. Web Apollo allows changes made by one user to become instantly viewable by others, allowing the community to see and share annotation updates in real-time - just like Google Docs. What will happen to your contribution(s)? Curators at Araport will regularly review community curation, and work with you to publish your datasets as part of a community curation track at JBrowse, with appropriate attribution to the contributors.
