Editors Discussion

Editors Guidelines

  • Closing old tickets
  • When? How?
  • It seems an SOP would be helpful here.


  • On call: Barbara, Chris, Eric, Harold, Jim, Judy, Kimberly, Pascale, Paul, Tanya

Synaptic vesicle endocytosis

  • Barbara will modify definition of existing term to be inclusive of more mechanisms
  • Then create more specific mechanism-based child terms

Editors guidelines

  • What to do with old tickets?
  • For some it makes sense to keep, especially if the ticket is wrt an issue that is currently under discussion
  • Specific tickets that require feedback but don't get it could be closed - use 'waiting for feedback' label for these
  • Use a label to distinguish these tickets - 'won't fix'
  • When editors have time, they should try to review old tickets
  • Perhaps a jamboree in the future to address old tickets would be helpful

Adding annotation rules

Reasoning over roles in Protege

  • https://github.com/geneontology/go-ontology/issues/14626
  • Does this happen?
  • For example, 'cocaine binding' should infer to be a type of 'drug binding'
  • Something wrong with the import chain? Is there a relationship missing in the ChEBI import?
  • Drugs are not listed as leaf nodes in Protege
