Mercator pipeline for automated sequence annotation


Using the Mercator web application you can assign MapMan "Bins" to arbitrary DNA or protein input sequences. The output will be a text file mapping each input identifier to one or more Bins. This file can directly be used as a mapping file for the high-throughput data visualization and meta-analysis software MapMan.
