This suggests that an annotation strategy that promotes nonelectronic ECs would be meaningful as it would benefit from the high-quality GO terms without totally excluding electronic annotations. Similarly, when accession IDs or gene symbols are known for the query sequences, these can be directly uploaded in B2G and the application will query the B2G database for their annotations.

B2G permits filtering out of low informative terms by imposing manuao threshold on the number of annotated sequences or B2G scores for a node to be displayed.

The second term AT of the annotation rule introduces the possibility of abstraction into the annotation algorithm. B2G has been implemented as a multiplatform Java desktop application made accessible by Java Webstart technology.

Blast2GO: A Comprehensive Suite for Functional Analysis in Plant Genomics

If the GOw is not equal to zero, the AT becomes contributing and the annotation of a parent node is possible if multiple child nodes manuao that do not reach the annotation cutoff. Additionally, functional annotation capabilities are usually incorporated in EST analysis pipelines. The enrichment analysis function in B2G executes a statistical assessment of differences in functional classes between two groups of sequences.

Once GO terms have been gathered, additional functionalities enable processing and modification of annotation results. In this paper, we describe the Blast2GO suite as a comprehensive bioinformatics tool for functional annotation of sequences and data mining on the resulting annotations, primarily based on the gene ontology GO vocabulary.


Bioinformatics software for biologists in the genomics era. This option permits skipping the first step of the B2G annotation procedure when a blast result is already present. The annotation accuracy of Blast2GO has been evaluated by comparing B2G GO annotation results to the existing annotation in a set of manually annotated Arabidopsis proteins that had been previously removed from the nr database.

Manual curation — The manual annotation tool is a useful functionality when information on the automatically generated annotation needs to be changed.

Finally, graph and enrichment analysis results are presented both graphically and as text files. A toolkit for addressing HCI issues in visual language environments.

After selecting the Blast menu, a dialog opens where we can indicate the parameters for the blast step. Export results — Once different analyses have been completed the data can be exported in many different ways. GOSlim — As the number of sequences and different GO terms in the Soybean array is quite large, we are interested in a simpler representation of the functional content of the data.

After this step, it is recommended to run the function to remove first-level annotations under Annotation menu. GO annotations are generated through a 3-step process: Moreover, the Main Sequence table see Figure 3 can be saved to a file at any moment to store intermediate results.

Transcriptional response of Citrus aurantifolia to infection by Citrus tristeza virus. For this analysis, the involved sequences with their annotations must be loaded in the application. The annotation procedure The Blast2GO annotation procedure consists of three main steps: The B2G annotation validation function applies this property to annotation results by removing any parent term that has a child within the sequence annotation set. For example, one might want to know the functional categories that are over- or underrepresented in the set of differentially expressed genes of a microarray experiment, or it could be of interest to find which functions are distinctly represented between different libraries of an EST collection.


B2G accepts nucleotide and protein sequences in FASTA format and supports the four basic blast programs blastx, blastp, blastn, and tblastx. We will address the functional annotation of the Soybean Affymetrix GeneChip.

Integrative and Comparative Biology. Highlighting at lower levels reveals other, most informative, highly represented functional terms, such as hydrolase activity level 3kinase activity level 4transcription factor activity level 3protein binding level 3blas2go binding level 3and transporter activity level 2. Additionally, the minimal hsp length required at the blast step permits control of the length of the matching region. ECs vary from experimental evidence, such as inferred by direct assay IDA to unsupervised assignments such as inferred by electronic annotation IEA.

Annotation, however, will ultimately be based on sequence mannual levels as similarity percentages are independent of database size and blast2yo intuitive than e -values. These permissive values are chosen to retrieve a large amount of information at this first time-consuming step. These refer to processes related to transport, protein targeting, and photosynthesis as might be expected for a plant species.

Additional blast parameters are kept at default values: Zdobnov EM, Apweiler R. High throughput functional annotation and data mining with the Blast2GO suite. This table contains significant GO terms which are ranked according to their significance.

Blast2GO: A Comprehensive Suite for Functional Analysis in Plant Genomics

Blast2GO is not a mere generator of functional annotations. Fewer resources, however, are available when it comes to the large-scale functional annotation of novel sequence data of nonmodel species, as would be specifically required in many plant functional genomics projects. GO annotation based on multiple alignment.
