In the recent Sight version, the distributed annotation system (DAS) support was added. DAS is a popular bioinformatical standard, based on http-like server requests and XML-based server responses. DAS is currently supported on a large number of bioinformatical servers (see www.biodas.org). DAS is mainly used to read the DNA sequences and annotated features of the sequenced genomes. Sight 2.1.2 can now work as DAS client and may be even tried as the DAS server.
