    *    Tool name: WEGO

    * URL for the tool:
      two mirrors: and
    * Name and URL of the organization that produced the tool:
      Beijing Genomics Institute,

    * Tool type: browser / annotation / microarray-related / other:

    * 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
      genomics tasks.

    * Is the tool web-based or standalone?
      web-based tool

    * 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

    * Is the tool free to academics?

    * Is the tool open source?

    * Any associated publications (please give PubMed ID if available)
      not yet
