STRAP for GO Annotation

STRAP: Software for Researching Annotations of Proteins

STRAP (Software Tool for Rapid Annotation of Proteins) is a software program developed at the Cardiovascular Proteomics Center of Boston University School of Medicine (Boston, MA). The program automatically annotates a protein list with information that helps in the meaningful interpretation of data from mass spectrometry and other techniques.

STRAP Overview

Hardware Requirements

STRAP requires Windows XP or higher with at least version 3.5 of the Microsoft .NET Framework installed.

Input Requirements

STRAP takes protein lists as input in the form of text files, protXML files (usually generated by the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline), or DAT files (from Mascot search results).

Example of Result Pages

STRAP downloads information from the Uniprot and EBI QuickGO databases to generate protein annotation tables and a variety of GO charts to aid in the individual and differential analysis of proteomics data. Examples of these results are shown in the three figures below.
