Annotation, assembly and liftover are recurring themes because they are tied to (updating) reference genomes. Here we track a next generation annotation system which will support versions of annotation with a matching reference genome. In the future we'll build this out with pangenome support.
is only used here, with all position fields being the ones that would ideally account for assembly (txStart, txEnd, cdsStart, cdsEnd, exonStarts, exonEnds - no idea why this last one has an "s" after Start/End)
where max LRS locus position is fetched for traits
notably the Position Search (the most "ambitious" version of this would allow for querying based off of different assemblies, but I can't think of a good way to do this with SQL)
