On call:


Compound function logical definition proposal

Paper identifying missing 'is_a' relations

David https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/advance-article/doi/10.1093/bioinformatics/btaa106/5739437

Some missing relations are not: is it a version problem ? or maybe they aren't using the inferred version of the ontology ?

  • From managers' call: We will extract errors reported and fix them - we need to assign someone.

Non-GO editors people making PR in the ontology tracker


Isn't our policy that *only* GO editors work on the ontology ? Or do we want to allow some other users to make PRs?

  • We don't want a blanket rule that no one outside of the ontology editors can make pull requests, but we need to be vigilant in monitoring the types and content of pull requests.

-> We need to decide on a practice. It would be great if more people helped, but we need a procedure to 'onboard' people correctly. (Does our current procedure address this? or do we need to add something?) -> Are only GO-editors allowed to do PRs ? how are permissions configured ?

Obsoleting GO:cell

https://github.com/geneontology/go-ontology/issues/19036 CL plans to make "Cell" only valid for metazoa. Do we need to refer to 'Cell' at all in GO?
