<p>With the relentless onslaught of genome sequencing projects, there have been several attempts to address the problem of annotating sequence data computationally. However, the task is nontrivial and generic tools have yet to emerge to help users gather information on a given sequence or set of sequences in a simple and convenient manner. As more genome projects bear fruit, the mass of uncharacterized sequence data accumulating in public repositories grows ever larger. There is thus a pressing need for tools that support automatic analysis and annotation of newly-determined sequences. To this end, the authors have developed Precis, a prototype tool that automatically creates protein reports from concise information.</p>
