In several places throughout your experiment pages in Pluto, you'll see enriched annotations for genes, proteins, peaks, and other targets or biological entities. These provide additional context for your research and link out to commonly used biological databases where possible.

Annotation source

Annotations are fetched from the MyGene.info (https://mygene.info) REST API. The annotation shown in Pluto is the top-scoring hit from MyGene.info based on the input query (biological entity in Pluto).
