Combining and exploiting these data in a consistent way has the potential to improve our ability to assign functions to new or uncharacterised genes.Methods: The Ondex data integration framework was further developed to integrate databases pertinent to plant gene annotation, and provide data inference tools. The CoPSA annotation pipeline was created to provide automated annotation of novel plant genes using this knowledgebase. CoPSA was used to derive annotations for Affymetrix GeneChips available for plant species.
