EvidentialGene Voting Machine

Genome map views include a method for you to vote for the best gene models at a locus. For example, at this Pea aphid2 Gbrowse map, choose a best model by clicking on the model. Choices include
  1. Best model, promote to best for a locus
  2. Alternate transcript, call as alternate were evidence supports
  3. Drop or demote as poor model
  4. None, say no models are good enough for this locus
  5. Skip this locus, saying there is no gene here (or not enough evidence for one).

These choices are then placed in A BEST User Choice Track. They will be visible when you Update Image, or turn off Display Setting: [ ] Cache tracks to update each time.

You can View Gene Details, with annotations of evidence for the model, and you can View Changes Table, with a list of all genes voted for.
Your expert choice of gene models will improve the automated best model selection, which is not as good at this as a human can be.

For model choices, see the GBrowse Tracks for Predictions, as well as Rnaseq or EST assemblies, and Protein homology gene models.
