Due to the upcoming release of version 4 of the Lotus genome and gene accession IDs, and that we are expecting coordinates to change drastically, we pre-empted a possible clash in the namespace of gene accessions. Therefore, we have implemented a change in version 3.0 gene accessions for Lotus japonicus with immediate effect.
For example, the old accessions ID for the gene “ATP synthase D chain-related protein” is
Lj1g2536050.1. With the updated nomenclature where the version number is appended after the chromosome name, the new accession ID for the same gene will be
A quick way to convert your existing gene IDs, should you want to search them against our databases, would be to append
3v after the
Lj[…]g[…] text in your gene accession ID so that it becomes
Lj[…]g3v[…]. The databases and site features affected by this update in nomenclature:
