Notes: This year FlyBase moved its primary GO curation over to Protein2GO (GOA). This has been very successful, enabling us to streamline the review of past GO annotation. As part of the import into the FlyBase Chado database, we have incorporated many other GO annotation sources including those generated via the PAINT project.

3. Methods and strategies for annotation

a. Literature curation

b. Computational annotation strategies: GO annotation based on InterPro2GO mappings are updated with every release of FlyBase.

c. Priorities for annotation:

1. Reviewing the GO annotation for sets of genes related by shared functional or sequence characteristics 2. Reviewing the GO annotation for signaling pathways

4. Presentations and publications

a. Papers with substantial GO content

Marygold SJ, Attrill H, Lasko P. (2017). The Translation Factors of Drosophila melanogaster. Fly 10(4). DOI:10.1080/19336934.2016.1220464. PubMed PMID:27494710

b. Poster presentations

25th European Drosophila Research Conference, Sept 2017, London UK: Function-centered approaches for finding and analyzing genes within FlyBase. Helen Attrill, Giulia Antonazzo, Alix J. Rey, Kathleen Falls, Joshua L. Goodman, Gillian H . Millburn, Steven J. Marygold and the FlyBase Consortium.

5. Other Highlights:

A. Ontology Development Contributions:

    • H. Attrill & G. Antonazzo have contributed to the review of signaling pathways (Canonical Wnt and JAK/STAT, with K Van Auken & R. Lovering).

B. Annotation Outreach and User Advocacy Efforts:

    • H. Attrill & G. Antonazzo (FlyBase) and Val Wood & Midori Harris (PomBase) hosted the GO consortium signaling workshop and meeting (Cmabridge, Oct 2017)
    • Working groups: HTP (H. Attrill), Signaling (H. Attrill, G. Antonazzo)

C. Other:

    • H. Attrill, G. Antonazzo, Nick Brown started a 5 year MRC funding for a grant which includes substantial GO content on 1st April 2017.
    • FlyBase GO ribbons summaries implemented for FB2.0 beta site.
