    • Signaling: The signaling branch has been committed and the project is being carried forward by Becky Foulger. [Jen]

    • Various SourceForge items
  • Content items in progress
    • Further discussion on aligning with ChEBI for cross-products (Midori, Chris, Jane, David, ChEBI curators); David and Tanya visiting Cambridge in March to standardize GO implicit chemical ontology
    • Kidney development meeting follow-up work in progress [Midori & David]
    • Working on two new sets of PAMGO terms, see [1] and [2] [Jane]
    • Added a new set of terms for axon-related cellular components in collaboration with NIF (Neuroscience Information Framework) [Jane & Chris]
    • Review of internal cross-product sets such as BP-xp-self and CC-xp-self continues; see plan to add internal cross-products. (Jen, Jane, Midori, Chris, David, Tanya)
    • Continuing to add function-process part-of links in gene_ontology_write.obo and gene_ontology_ext.obo (David, Tanya)
    • Work continues on overhauling terms related to viruses (Jane)
    • Quality control continues as usual - reports generated by Chris (cronjobs)
      • Reasoner-based implied links for new regulation terms - also see above (David, Tanya)
      • Multiple part_of parents (several GO curators, especially Tanya & David)
      • Abduced links [[3]](David, Tanya)
      • Problematic regulates terms [[4]](David, Tanya)
  • Publications
    • Manuscript on Taxon triggers almost ready for submission to BMC Bioinformatics (Jen, Chris)
    • New PAMGO paper "Unifying themes in microbial associations with animal and plant hosts described using the Gene Ontology" ready for submission to Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews
    • Case studies for publication on "revisability" of GO, proposed and coordinated by Sabina Leonelli - in progress (Midori, Jane, Alex, Karen C)
    • Continued from November & December:
      • Resuming work on manuscript on regulates relations (Jane, Midori, David, Chris, Tanya, maybe other annotators)
