Questions for the Scientific Advisory Board
- What criteria should we use to collect and prioritize genes for the reference genomes?
- What measures would be effective for assessing progress on the reference genome projects? That is, the accuracy and level of detail for individual genes, and coverage of all functional elements across the genome.
- Given our limited resources, what other groups might we work with that would provide maximal benefit to both?
- What are the key parameters to keep the GO central to biology? That is, how do we keep moving forward?
- How can we create an incentive to motivate groups to improve computational methods for functional annotation prediction?
- 0830-0900 Introductions; Review Agenda and Objectives for this day.
- Since we have just the one day, it will be important to establish at the start what we hope to accomplish. We seek the input and expertise of the SAB to evaluate the progress and priorities of the GOC taking into strong consideration the aims of the funding GOC grant yet recognizing the demands of the current scientific research environment and developments.
- The plan here is to spend the morning in a review of current progress, and the afternoon in discussion led by the concerns and interests of the SAB.
- 0900 - 0945 Ontology Development
We will maintain comprehensive, logically rigorous and biologically accurate ontologies..
- PI Lead: Suzi Lewis

- Working Group: OBO_Edit Working Group
- This report will include biological content of ontology development (content meetings)as well as changes to the ontology structure including ""is_a complete"", disjointedness, progress on edges between function and process, and introduction of new relationship (regulates).
- 945 - 1030 Reference Genome Project
We will comprehensively annotate reference genomes in as complete detail as possible.
- PI Lead: Judy Blake
- Project Leads: Pascale Gaudet and Rex Chisholm
