A Comprehensive Analysis of Gene Expression Changes Provoked by Bacterial and Fungal Infection in C. elegans

Figure 4

The WormBase Converter.

Constant changes in gene annotations create the need for WormBase Converter. (A) Example of the gene R07E5.12 that has undergone a merge with R07E5.10, which then has been re-annotated. More recently, as seen here in WS220, the structure of R07E5.10 has been further modified. (B) Example of an input list with CDS Sequence names as identifiers based on WormBase version WS150 and the corresponding output list in WS210 using gene sequence name as identifier. The output list can be copied and pasted into any spreadsheet for further use. The number of successfully converted genes is indicated. In this case, 11 out of 413 genes were absent from the output list; 5 had been “killed”, and 6 not found in the WS150 release. On the other hand, because of gene splits, the output list contained 4 new genes. (C) List showing the changes that occurred during the conversions, the nature of the change and the version when the change was implemented, including the 5 “killed” genes. (D) List of 6 genes that were not found in the version used as input.
