AbstractThe genome sequence of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum was published in 2002 and revealed that approximately 60% of its genes could not be assigned a function. Eight years later the majority of P. falciparum proteins are still of unknown function. We therefore present PlasmoPredict, an easy-to-use online gene function prediction tool that integrates a wide range of functional genomics data for P. falciparum to aid in the annotation of these genes.
