The annotation of genomic ranges such as peaks resulting from ChIP-seq/ATAC-seq or other techniques represents a fundamental task of bioinformatics analysis with considerable impact on many downstream analyses. In our previous work, we introduced the Universal Robust Peak Annotator (UROPA), a flexible command line based tool which improves upon the functionality of existing annotation software. In order to reduce the complexity for biologists and clinicians, we have implemented an intuitive web-based graphical user interface (GUI) and fully functional service platform for UROPA. This extension will empower all users to generate annotations for regions of interest interactively. The open source UROPA GUI server was implemented in R Shiny and Python and is available from http://loosolab.mpi-bn.mpg.de. The source code of our App can be downloaded at https://github.molgen.mpg.de/loosolab/UROPA_GUI under the MIT license.
