Harvester is a meta search engine for gene and protein information. It searches 16 major databases and prediction servers and combines the results on pregenerated HTML pages. In this way Harvester can provide comprehensive gene-protein information from different servers in a convenient and fast manner. The Harvester search engine works similar to Google, offering genome-wide ranked results at very high speed. Here we describe how to use this bioinformatic tool along with selected examples.
