Abstract

Genome annotation is crucial for the bridging the gap between sequence and biology. Nonetheless, it is also a dynamic and continuous improvement process for better understanding of the molecular biology of the genome. With the deep RNA-sequencing of eight Brassica rapa tissues, it should be able to predict protein-coding genes with more accuracy when incorporating this type of RNA information into analysis. In doing so, we used our built annotation pipeline to re-annotate the B. rapa genome on the levels of repetitive elements, protein-coding genes and non-coding RNA genes, respectively. In total, we identified 139.9 MB repetitive elements, 6,088 non-coding RNA genes and 45,149 protein-coding genes, respectively. These results, together with those published previously, would provide a valuable resource for further understanding of B. rapa.
