Only Varroa destructor and Eufriesea mexicana are available for manual annotation via Apollo at this time. The bee datasets are available in collaboration with BeeBase – if manual annotation of these organisms is desired, please contact We provide links in each of the organism pages to the original BeeBase datasets. Note that all BeeBase datasets were updated for display on the RefSeq genome assemblies, so there are minor changes in the gene sets. Details can be found in the readme files associated with each dataset.
