Submitting Annotation report for a gene desert fosmid

Post by dpaetkau » Thu May 02, 2013 7:08 pm

I am trying to submit several of our projects that are gene deserts. Students have performed the 3 tests for a gene desert and they have all passed those tests. The problem is in submission. There are no pep, fasta or gff files for a gene desert project. The submission causes an error if you attach only the report without these files. What should we do?

Thanks,
Don

The fosmids are D. ananassae: 1771G21, 2592P02, 2750B05

To submit a project without any genes, you can create a plain text file (e.g. using TextEdit on the Mac, WordPad on Windows) with the message "No genes found in project" and save the file with the .gff extension. You can then create two additional copies of this file and change the file extension to .fasta and .pep, respectively.

Using these three files and the completed GEP Annotation Report, you can submit the project using the Project Management System.
