The purpose of this project is to update the functional annotation for the grape genome. Previous work that created a functional annotation of the grape genome has been shown to be not very accurate as time has passed. The methods used to create the annotation are not reproducible, which takes away from the credibility of the annotations. As technology has improved, there is more accurate data available for functional annotations, and it is important to update old annotations to reflect new discoveries. Over the past couple of years, Dr. Carolyn Lawrence-Dill's lab has been working on creating updated functional genome annotations of many different species of plants using a software they developed called Gene Ontology Meta Annotator for Plants (GOMAP). This involves finding and manipulating a protein fasta file to the correct format, creating slurm files to run the software, and reviewing the gene ontology annotations output by the software to check for accuracy. This project is expected to result in a new data set containing functional annotations for the grape with updated Gene Ontology terms and will discuss the accuracy of the generated annotations compared to older versions.
