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
  • 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
