GAF 2.1 specs
From GO Wiki
Plan for releasing GAF 2.1
- Document GAF 2.1 changes on GOC website (done- http://geneontology.org/page/go-annotation-file-formats)
- GAF 2.1 version will allow pipe and comma in the With/From column. This is the only change in this release
- check if Drupal will allow 2_1 instead of 21 in the URL. If yes, then we should change the URLs and have redirects from the old pages
- create test GAF file
- test file is available in github- https://github.com/owlcollab/owltools/blob/master/OWLTools-Annotation/src/test/resources/pipecomma.gaf
- Announce GAF 2.1 on GOC mailing list, other forums. Tentative date for the switch is July 1st, 2015.
- What are the consequences?
- Filtering script, jenkins checks. Tony already has lots of rules down for this column. Incorporate those into the filtering script.
- Check when protein2GO can accommodate this change
- Display in AmiGO
- Provide convertors to go from 1.0 to 2.1 and 2.0 to 2.1
- Pipe will be the default.
- GPAD format will follow the same process
