How to merge unique/non overlapping genes between 2 gene model GFF3 files?
I have 2 gene models:
- Recent supposedly higher quality gene model
- Older supposedly lower quality gene model
Some genes though that are described in literature have been removed in the more recent gene model. While they are in the older gene model. I would like to add these and other "missing" genes back to the more recent gene model, from the older gene model.
But if there is an overlap between genes from the different models, I would like to keep the genes as described in the more recent gene model.
Is there a way to do this?
