Blast2GO PRO Plugin

Functional Genomics Made Easy.

The Blast2GO PRO Plugin makes the most popular Blast2GO features directly available from within the workbench (Main and Genomics). It allows you to extend and integrate your bioinformatics data analysis with cutting-edge functional genomics tools. All features are seamlessly integrated and provide a professional solution for the functional analysis of novel sequence datasets. Genome-wide functional annotation and interpretation can be executed as workflows directly on you existing datasets. The plugin allows to speed-up your sequence alignments with CloudBlast to find homologous sequences, extract GO terms and create high-quality Gene Ontology functional annotations. Additional classifications can be performed through functional enrichment analysis, Gene Ontology summaries and rich graph visualizations. Download the plugin to get a free trial.

For more details of all available features please visit the online user manual.

Main features:

  • Access to the High-Performance CloudBlast for fast NCBI Blast+
  • Access to the High-Performance Cloud InterProScan
  • Gene Ontology Mapping of Blast Results
  • Best Practice Functional Annotation
  • InterProScan Domain Searches
  • Functional Enrichment Analysis
  • Rich Graph Visualization and GO-Slim Reduction
  • EggNOG 5.0 Annotation (COG,KOG,ENOG)
  • Subcellular localization with PSORTb
  • Identification of ncRNA with Rfam
  • Many Statistics Charts
  • Multiple Data Import and Export Options

Application note: Whole genome functional annotation of Solanum lycopersicum
