Dear Arthropodists,

Seasons greetings, and find a present of Tribolium beetle genes here:

This EvidentialGene gene set evg2tribol for Tribolium_castaneum is more 
complete than two other recent Tribolium gene sets, measured by 
orthology completeness,

This is a 'reference-free' gene set assembly from mRNA-seq, without 
a genome assembly nor training/mapping from other species genes. As such 
it has different values than genome-based gene sets, one important one is 
no external artifacts or errors contribute to these genes.  Protein orthology 
measured has not been influenced by gene modelling using other species (and their 
artifacts), and genome assembly errors.

An existing dogma in genome projects, that quality of a gene set is dependent 
on the quality of the genome assembly, is no longer accurate.  mRNA-seq assembly 
now does as well or better than genome-gene modelling.
