I see plenty of papers describing annotations of de novo assembled transcriptomes, but I can't really seem to put a finger on the accepted method of publishing an annotated transcriptome.
So my questions:
- How does one publish an annotation of a transcriptome?
- Is there any criteria on what files need to be uploaded? I presume a
FASTAwith the sequences and a table of some sort relating the headers to human-readable annotations would be the bare minimum. Or is a
FASTAfile with human-readable headers sufficient? Is some sort of a "raw" assembly
FASTAfile also necessary?
- What else can one publish as a part of a transcriptome annotation?
- What platforms are considered suitable for publishing the annotation data? GitHub? figshare?
Your inputs would be much appreciated.
