CAP = Community Annotation Project



"utilizes a community of experts to curate database information. As an example, consider the Neurospora crassa Community Annotation Project (CAP) ), designed by the Broad Institute . Gene annotation is a critical step in transforming a genome sequence into a useful biological research tool, but annotation is difficult and time consuming. By allowing experts in the Neurospora community to evaluate and amend the annotation data for the organism, the CAP adds an extra layer of evaluation to the database and accelerates the annotation process. It may very well be that this type of genome annotation method becomes a standard among sequencing centers in the near future." (
