New Ontology Editor Training

From GO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This document is intended to guide new GO editors through the process of learning about and editing the ontologies. It is divided into eight rather unequal sessions. There is no set time for each session, and some will probably merge in to one another. Most sessions have some exercises at the end for you to work through, which an experienced editor will go through with you afterwards. Remember it's fine to ask for advice at any time!
