Golden snub-nosed monkey assembly and gene annotation

The golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) is an Old World monkey in the Cercopithecidae family. It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and Southwest China, where it lives at elevations of 1,500-3,400 m above sea level.

Assembly

The Rrox_v1 assembly was submitted by Novogene on 2014/10/28 . The assembly is on the Scaffold level, consisting of 196,797 assembled into 135,512 scaffolds. The N50 size is the length such that 50% of the assembled genome lies in blocks of the N50 size or longer. The N50 length for the contigs is 77,151 while the scaffold N50 is 1,549,224.

Gene annotation

The gene annotation process was carried out using a combination of protein-to-genome alignments, annotation mapping from a suitable reference species and RNA-seq alignments (where RNA-seq data with appropriate meta data were publicly available). For each candidate gene region, a selection process was applied to choose the most appropriate set of transcripts based on evolutionary distance, experimental evidence for the source data and quality of the alignments. Small ncRNAs were obtained using a combination of BLAST and Infernal/RNAfold. Pseudogenes were calculated by looking at genes with a large percentage of non-biological introns (introns of <10bp), where the gene was covered in repeats, or where the gene was single exon and evidence of a functional multi-exon paralog was found elsewhere in the genome.

In accordance with the Fort Lauderdale Agreement , please check the publication status of the genome/assembly before publishing any genome-wide analyses using these data.
