* Brief description of tool
WEGO (Web Gene Ontology Annotation Plot) is a simple but useful
tool for plotting Gene Ontology (GO) annotation results. Different
from other commercial software for chart creating, WEGO is
designed to deal with the directed acyclic graph (DAG) structure
of GO to facilitate histogram creation of GO annotation results.
WEGO has been widely used in many important biological research
projects, such as the rice genome project and the silkworm genome
project. It has become one of the useful tools for downstream gene
annotation analysis, especially when performing comparative
* Is the tool web-based or standalone?
* If the tool is standalone, which platforms can use it? (Windows /
Mac / Unix / Linux / other)?
For web-based tools it is assumed that all platforms can use the
tool unless otherwise stated.
We have test WEGO on firefox, ie, netscape, opera.
Requires a SVG plug-in
