Bottom Line: Online gene annotation resources are indispensable for analysis of genomics data.However, the landscape of these online resources is highly fragmented, and scientists often visit dozens of these sites for each gene in a candidate gene list.Moreover, BioGPS embraces the principle of community intelligence, enabling any user to easily and directly contribute to the BioGPS platform.

ABSTRACT
Online gene annotation resources are indispensable for analysis of genomics data. However, the landscape of these online resources is highly fragmented, and scientists often visit dozens of these sites for each gene in a candidate gene list. Here, we introduce BioGPS http://biogps.gnf.org, a centralized gene portal for aggregating distributed gene annotation resources. Moreover, BioGPS embraces the principle of community intelligence, enabling any user to easily and directly contribute to the BioGPS platform.

Figure 3: Screenshot of a custom BioGPS gene report layout for the gene CDK2. Registered users can easily create custom layouts using any plugins in the plugin library. Each plugin is rendered within its own window that can be moved, resized, and maximized using standard controls.

Mentions: As both scientists and developers, we recognize that different users are interested in learning about different aspects of gene function. Previously, we described the pre-defined layouts offered in BioGPS that correspond to common use cases. In addition, users who register for an optional user account are able to personalize and save additional gene report layouts. These custom layouts enable each user to tailor BioGPS to their individual interests using any of the registered plugins in the plugin library (an example custom layout is shown in Figure 3). Within a layout, plugins are visualized using a windowing framework in which, similar to common operating systems, windows can be repositioned and resized using standard click-and-drag mouse actions. Switching between layouts (either pre-defined or personalized) can be done using a simple drop-down menu.
