Complex split/merge creates updated sns annotation and new annotation CG30350. Only evidence (black panel) directly used to annotate the gene models (cyan panel) is shown. Occasionally, annotation of a particular region required complex rearrangement of the exons comprising the Release 2 gene models. In this case, the second exon of the Release 2 annotation CG8278 (light blue) was split off as a new gene (CG30350, dark blue) on the strength of DGC cDNA data (dark green) and BLASTX evidence (red). The remaining exon of CG8278, along with six other Release 2 annotations (CG13755, CG12495, CG13754, CG2385, CG13753, and CG13752; light blue), were merged together into the large sns gene (dark blue), strongly supported by sequence of a full-length sns cDNA, GenBank:AF254867.
