What does the name GABI-Kat stand for?

The name "GABI-Kat" was chosen because we are funded by GABI (German plant genomics research program), because of the acronym "KAT" as explained above, and because we want to katalyze gene function search.
Although the project is carried out since January 2007 at Bielefeld University (see GABI-Kat history), the acronym was kept. Infomation about the city of Bielefeld can be found here.
