MapMan visualises data from gene expression analyses. Genes or proteins with a common function are visualised and evaluated together. Mercator assigns the annotations for this. Changes in processes and pathways can be revealed, visualised and evaluated quantitatively.
The MapMan desktop application displays plant protein function annotation results combined with gene expression data onto diagrams of metabolic pathways or other processes. This requires an installation of the MapMan desktop application (available for MS Windows, MacOS and Linux) on a local computer.
To display protein function annotations combined with gene expression data for a certain set of protein sequences, the installed MapMan desktop application needs:
It is important that protein/gene identifiers are identical (case sensitive !) in both the Mercator4 annotation result file and the gene expression file (green columns in example tables).
