BioGPS: an extensible and customizable portal for querying and organizing gene annotation resources

Genome Biol. 2009;10(11):R130. doi: 10.1186/gb-2009-10-11-r130. Epub 2009 Nov 17.


Online gene annotation resources are indispensable for analysis of genomics data. However, the landscape of these online resources is highly fragmented, and scientists often visit dozens of these sites for each gene in a candidate gene list. Here, we introduce BioGPS, a centralized gene portal for aggregating distributed gene annotation resources. Moreover, BioGPS embraces the principle of community intelligence, enabling any user to easily and directly contribute to the BioGPS platform.
