Partial result of a GO annotation using FastAnnotator. The GO annotation results include horizontal bar charts in addition to a table of sequences and corresponding GO annotations. These three horizontal bar charts present the distribution of GO terms categorized as biological process, cellular components or molecular functions, which represent the three main categories for GO annotation. Because the GO terms have a hierarchical structure, FastAnnotator provides views of the distribution of GO terms at different levels. Users can select the level and obtain the overall distribution of the GO terms in real-time. For example, level 1 presents the roots (e.g., biological process, cellular components and molecular functions), and level 3 presents the GO terms that are 2 edges away from the roots.
