For good results, try several databases

Just wanted to point out this paper recently published in BMC Genomics: Integrating multiple genome annotation databases i… [BMC Genomics. 2010]

Often in our trainings we are asked which annotations or databases are best. Our stock and, frankly, accurate answer is that it depends on what you are looking for, your personal preferences and more. This paper concludes, at least when it comes to zebrafish transcript data, that pulling annotations from several databases instead of one increases the ability to get full data. Might sound obvious to some, but it’s always good to see the data.. and to point it out.
