Summary: Marker2sequence aims at mining quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for candidate genes. For each gene, within the QTL region, marker2sequence uses data integration technology to integrate putative gene function with associated Gene Ontology terms, proteins, pathways and literature. As a typical QTL region easily contains several hundreds of genes, this gene list can then be further filtered using a keyword based query on the aggregated annotations. Marker2sequence will help breeders to identify potential candidate genes for their traits of interest. Availability: Marker2sequence is freely accessible at The source code can be obtained at Contact: Supplementary information: supplementary figures are available at Bioinformatics online.
