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.
The Mercator tool generates functional predictions by searching a variety of reference databases (currently 6 are available: 3 BLAST-based, 2 RPSBLAST based and InterProScan) and subsequently evaluating and compiling the search results for each input gene to propose a functional Bin based on the manually curated binning of the reference database entries.
All input data has to submitted in FASTA format.
