Protein Annotators' Assistant (PAA) is a software system which assists protein annotators in assigning functions to newly sequenced proteins. PAA employs a number of information retrieval techniques in a novel setting and is thus related to text categorization, where multiple categories may be suggested, except that in this case none of the categories are specified in advance. Discusses the system and methods and presents examples of use. (Contains 21 references.) (AEF)
