Temporary aims

  • We would like to use DAS to improve on current annotation tools of the MIT registry, by being able to access external sources.
  • The current MIT registry does not allow for more complex queries and filters, so we would like to improve on this by allowing for more refined searches
  • Including an option to BLAST in and out of the registry will be highly useful too. The JBE allows the user to blast inside the registry.
