The SEED Project (http://www.theseed.org/index.php/Main_Page) was started over a decade ago to focus on creating more accurate annotations of prokaryotic genomes, along with the tools needed to support such an effort. A number of research teams have participated, and numerous projects were based on the evolving technology that was cooperatively built. Some of these teams sought funding to support comparative analysis of pathogens, and a number did successfully acquire funding from NSF, NIH, and DOE.
