GENCODE

Phase 2 GENCODE Goals

The aims of GENCODE Phase 2, which runs from 2013 to 2017, as a sub-project of the ENCODE scale-up project are:

The mouse annotation data will allow comparative studies between human and mouse and likely improve annotation quality in both genomes. The process to create this annotation involves manual curation, different computational analysis and targeted experimental approaches. Putative loci can be verified by wet-lab experiments and computational predictions will be analysed manually.

The human GENCODE resource will continue to be available to the research community with quarterly releases of Ensembl genome browser (mouse data will be made available with every other release), while the UCSC genome browser will continue to present the current release of the GENCODE gene set.
