Cosmoss Gene IDs
Cosmoss locus and gene identifiers (CGI)
On cosmoss each gene model has an additional unique gene (locus) ID (CGI). The CGI provides a unique address to a gene (model). Using a clustering procedure, all overlapping gene models were grouped into a unique locus. For each locus a unique number was assigned, which is specific for a given assembly. All CGIs include the number of the scaffold and the number of the locus they belong as well as information on the version of the assembly and annotation or the gene predictor they are derived from.
They include information on:
- the assembly version
- the number of the scaffold
- the number of the locus
- the class: the version of the annotation release or the gene predictor that predicted the model
- the splice variant
The type field indicates either the version of a released model (e.g. V1.2 or V1.5) or the predictor of a gene model in the all_models catalog.
