The information and links displayed in the Functional annotation block is automatically updated from OCA, the browser and database for structure and function, that scans and integrates weekly data from several sources that are of free access for Universities, including PSI Structural Genomics Knowledgebase (SGKB) and UniProt.
Functional annotation is the process of identifying for a given gene its biological function, interaction with other elements, involvement in metabolic pathways, and any other piece of information that helps in understanding when and how a gene influences the overall system.
