Batch conversion of Chlamydomonas gene identifiers

The tool for converting batches of Chlamydomonas gene identifiers between different annotation versions has been updated to include all versions from JGI v3 onwards.

The tool is available here:

The versions that can be converted are JGI v3, v4, v4.3 (Augustus u10.2), v5.3.1, v5.5 as well as Augustus u5 and u9 and GenBank accessions corresponding to the JGI v3 version that was deposited in GenBank.

Details of the algorithms used to complete the mapping between versions as well as example identifiers and a summary of the different annotations is available under the ‘Details…’ link at the conversion tool page.
