ggKbase has always allowed users to add notes to a feature or a contig. In addition to adding notes to a feature, users can also manually add a new annotation to a feature. With the integration with the Elasticsearch system and the deployment of the percolation feature in Elasticsearch, we can now analyze the newly added notes and annotations on the fly and associate a feature or a contig of features with lists, based on the words in the newly added notes and annotations.
In addition to this improvement, the annotations table has been updated so that it can contain all the db_xrefs information. This resulted in a change to the layout of the Annotation detail views. Finally, we restructured the annotation import process in order to cut down the import time by 4-10-fold.
