Summary: PAnnBuilder is an R package to automatically assemble protein annotation information from public resources to provide uniform annotation data for large-scale proteomic studies. Sixteen public databases have been parsed and 54 annotation packages have been constructed based on R environment or SQLite database. These ready-to-use packages cover most frequently needed protein annotation for three model species including human, mouse and rat. Several extended applications such as annotation based on protein sequence similarity are also provided. Sophisticated users can develop their own packages using PAnnBuilder. PAnnBuilder may become an important tool for proteomic research.

Availability: PAnnBuilder and example annotation packages are freely available from
