October2010 Annotation Advocacy Report
Making Progress with updating Documentation
Continuing to work on Col. 16 cell type documentation. A first draft should be available early November.
Hard QC checks
Two more hard QC checks were sent around the GO mailing list for approval.
1) Correct format of references should be e.g.SGD_REF:S000047763|PMID:2676709
2) The ND evidence code should be used for annotations to the root nodes only and should be accompanied with the reference GO_REF:0000015 or an internal MOD reference that is listed as an external accession in the documentation
Details of these QC checks are on the wiki
