Summary of conserved vertebrate genes in 3 zebrafish gene sets
Examples of zebrafish genes improved in Evigene reconstruction,
versus NCBI EGAP RefSeq gene set of 2016, and Ensembl gene set of
2017 (ZFIN uses this).
The first set shows conserved single-copy vertebrate gene families
measured with BUSCO OrthoDB v9. The following set shows (non-single-copy)
fish genes conserved in 2+ related species.
For several of the missing conserved genes, there exists a gene model, that either has
an abnormally short protein, or no protein (i.e. non-coding transcript
models). For some cases, and others not shown, the Evigene complete
ortholog gene is poorly mapped, or unmapped, to zfish GRCz10 chromosome
assembly. For other cases, the Evigene model is fully located on
