Codename Afra

Description and applications

Inspired by crowdsourcing approaches and platforms including Foldit, Galaxy Zoo and Crowdflower, we are developing Afra to recruit additional gene feature curators. This should help dramatically increase the quality of gene curations available for newly sequenced genomes. In the long-term we aim to recruit contributors among members of the general public.

Alpha. Work in progress.BBSRC-funded tool for crowd-sourcing curation of gene predictions.
