The purpose of GPAT is to provide an easy to use and convenient tool for rapidly annotating reasonably large sets of genomic positions.
The tool was designed to help biologists using high throughput methods such as ChIP chip or ChIP seq to retrieve genomic annotations from public databases (NCBI, ENSEMBL).
In addition to the gene annotation, GPAT allows the retrieval of some expression data and chromosomic position data.
Furthermore GPAT allows to define the positions present in the highly analysed ENCODE regions.
A manuscript describing GPAT features has been published in BMC Bioinformatics
