Apollo is a web-based application that supports and enables collaborative genome curation in real time, allowing teams of curators to improve on existing automated gene models through an intuitive interface. Apollo allows researchers to break down large amounts of data into manageable portions to mobilize groups of researchers with shared interests.
The i5k, an initiative to sequence the genomes of 5,000 insect and related arthropod species, is a broad and inclusive effort that seeks to involve scientists from around the world in their genome curation process, and Apollo is serving as the platform to empower this community.
This presentation is an introduction to Apollo for the members of the i5K Pilot Project working on species of the order Calanoida (copepod).
