The i5k Workspace@NAL provides data visualization, access, and curation tools for any arthropod genome project. We strive to:
Help improve the quality of arthropod genome assemblies and their annotations through our toolset and services;
Provide tools to improve, curate, and disseminate genome annotations;
Guide our data providers to long-term repositories for their stable datasets;
Improve arthropod genome data accessibility.
Here, we outline our data management policy for arthropod genome projects hosted at the i5k Workspace. Our current focus is on arthropod genome assemblies and all datasets derived from or mapped to them.
