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