BLANNOTATOR internet service
Blannotator is a rapid tool for functional prediction of gene or proteins sequences. The tool
accepts DNA or protein sequences, given in FASTA-format, and performs a Blast homology search
against SwissProt, Trembl or UniProt databases. Matching sequences with similar annotations are
then merged into families of similar descriptions, which are, in turn, further unified, based on
assigned GO-profiles retrieved from GOA, into sets of functionally equivalent sequences. The
most representative functional description is selected by measuring the level of homology of
the matches and frequency of different words in the description lines of the matches within
the clusters. As a result, a reliable description will be obtained.
