Xenopus Immune System: Gene Annotation Jamboree/Biohackathon

When: Monday July 19th, 2021.
Hybrid meeting: In person at University of Rochester (Rochester, NY) and online (Zoom)
Who should come: PIs Postdocs PhD and Graduate students working on vertebrate immune system.

Goals of the Jamboree:

  *   Identify issues and bottlenecks faced by Xenopus Immunobiology researchers
  *   Assess synteny and orthology with human and other vertebrate genes
  *   Correctly name Xenopus genes
  *   Build gene support via gene pages on Xenbase (ie., addi new gene pages and add gene models to existing gene pages)
  *   GO-CAM annotations for Xenopus immune genes (data goes to the GO consortium and other databases)
  *   Participants will gain bioinformatic & gene annotation skills (plus an appreciation of the importance of high quality annotation!)
