The Nylanderia fulva OGSv1.0 is the Official Gene Set of genome assembly TAMU_Nfulva_1.0 ( It is a merge of NCBI Nylanderia fulva Annotation Release 100 ( and semi-automated predictions of odorant receptors.

Odorant receptor predictions were based on manual curations of ORs (McKenzie & Kronauer 2018). Curated models were aligned to the genome with a combination of GeMoMa (, exonerate ( and BLAST. The exonerate alignment is based on a pipeline from Zhou et al 2015. Evidence from the different sources were combined with EvidenceModeler ( All gene models were checked for the 7tm6 domain against pfam using "".

Odorant receptor predictions were merged with the NCBI Nylanderia fulva Annotation Release 100 using the GFF3toolkit software (
