Otterlace is an interactive, graphical client, which uses a local acedb database with Zmap and perl/Tk tools to curate genomic annotation. Annotation is stored in an extended Ensembl schema (the "otter" database), which presents the annotator with contiguous regions of a chromosome. The acedb database provides local persistent storage, so that if the software or desktop machine crashes, reboots or is exited, the editing session can be recovered. Since all communication goes through the Sanger web server, annotators can work wherever there is a network connection.
