MOTIVATION To cope with the increasing amount of sequence data, reliable automatic annotation tools are required. The TrEMBL database contains together with SWISS-PROT nearly all publicly available protein sequences, but in contrast to SWISS-PROT only limited functional annotation. To improve this situation, we had to develop a method of automatic annotation that produces highly reliable functional prediction using the language and the syntax of SWISS-PROT. RESULTS An algorithm was developed… CONTINUE READING
