Genome Assembly and Annotation Nomenclature


The rapid and accelerating increase in the numbers of genome assemblies available for each species and the rise of pan-genome research, in addition to cross-species research, elevates the importance of standardized genome assembly and annotation nomenclature. This group will review the state of existing nomenclature recommendations and work toward a unified nomenclature.
