Xenopus tropicalis v10 genome

The Xenopus tropicalis version 10 (v10) genome has been released.


On Xenbase you can BLAST to the genome and view it on JBrowse.


The Xenopus troicalis v9.1 genome had 34232 models - including tRNAs, pseudogenes, and microRNAs.


75% of version 10 has retention and refinement of v9.1 sequences with approximately 19,000 genes having 1:1 mappings to the 9.1 models.


Version 10 has 4500 completely new models. ~50% of these are single exon genes, 18% new gene models that were not present in version 9.1.


Within these subsets of genes, 83% of them have updated gene models.


Annotations of the gene models will be forthcoming.
