Volvox carteri scaffold sequences

Genome / Gene Models

The genome assembly displayed at VcGDB is version phytozome/v8.0/v1; gene models are from phytozome/v8.0/v2/. For more information see Data & Methods. More about the genome...

Alignments to Genome

VcGDB displays high quality spliced alignments for EST, cDNA, PUT, related species protein, and Probe. The current database version is VcGDB187. For more information see Data & Methods.

Search / Download

Search or download any sequence from VcGDB using Search / Download links at left. Complete datasets can also be downloaded from the VcGDB Download page or by ftp. More about search / download...

Sequence analysis tools accessed from the Genome Context View menu use the current genomic region as input. Or, to access the same tools without a genomic context, use VcGDB left menubar Tools links. More about tools...

Community Annotation

Help annotate the Volvox carteri genome using our yrGATE gene structure annotation tool (see Overview), aided by GAEVAL tables that flag problematic gene models. Video demo: QuickTime   Flash

Custom Track Display

Distributed Annotation Service (DAS) (see Overview) is available for displaying remotely served genome alignments at VcGDB, as well as for displaying selected VcGDB tracks on a different genome browser (e.g. Ensembl, GBrowse). How to use DAS...

Additional custom track display features are under development.

Annotated Protein Alignments

A searchable table of splice-aligned, annotated protein models.

VcGDB is being developed as a part of our NSF-funded project "Cyberinfrastructure for (Comparative) Plant Genome Research Through PlantGDB" (PI: Volker Brendel). The purpose of this resource is to provide a convenient sequence-centered genome view for Volvox carteri, with a narrow focus on gene structure annotation.
