Import (Annotation imported from groups external to Ensembl)

Some vertebrate species (and many of the plant, metazoa, bacteria, protists and fungi species in Ensembl Genomes) have gene annotation that was produced by a third party. When we have imported the gene set, it is labelled as "External Annotation Import" to highlight the annotation source.
