Ensembl will annotate the goat genome assembly (GCA_001704415.1, submitted by USDA ARS 2016/08/24). The annotation is planned for release in the 2017 summer. Transcriptomics data are a valuable tool to annotate genomes. I thus encourage you to make your transcriptomics data accessioned and publicly available by 31st January 2017.
If you need any help for the submission, please contact: Data submission at EBI.
Before submitting your data, look at the FAANG documentation and the FAANG standards. If you follow these, any data you create will also be integrated into the FAANG resource.
