COMPARE PRP Statements
In response to questions about the validity of the inclusion of a GFP-like protein from Scleronephthya gracillima in COMPARE’ 2018 (accession # BAW32535.1), the peer-review panel (PRP) of the database has re-reviewed the entry and has decided to remove the sequence (accession # BAW32535.1) from the 2019 database. This document provides the detailed justification for this removal, as stated by PRP members.
