The group is curating MapMan categories and is providing manually curated data for plant gene family annotation with a strong focus on gene function. This is available both as a downloadable software (MapMan) for model and crop species, but we also run an automated classification and genome wide protein /gene functional annotation tool (Mercator and Mercator 4).

The data can then directly be used in the MapMan Tool or as a resource for genome annotation. Especially the new version is ultrafast and allows to annotate a full proteome of a plant in less than 10 Minutes. This is a de.NBI resource (
