Table 1 Binning: illustration of how a DAS source may implement binning.

From: Integrating biological data – the Distributed Annotation System

Positions 11 12 13 14 15   16 17 18 19 20   21 22 23 24 25
Available bins Bin 1   Bin 2   Bin 3
Annotation score 8 3 9 1 4   7 6 7 2 0   2 4 4 3 5
Features returned    9     7           5
  1. In this contrived example a client requests feature annotations for a segment of sequence between bases 11 and 25, with a maxbins parameter of 3. The DAS source has an annotation for every base but, after sorting each into its appropriate bin, returns only those features with the highest scores.
