Outreach July 2008 Report
Plant-Associated Microbe Gene Ontology (PAMGO) Training Workshop
By Trudy Torto-Alalibo, Michelle Gwinn-Giglio, Candace Collmer.
Virginia Bioinformatics Institute
July 14-16, 2008
The PAMGO Training Workshop provided two days of lectures on genome annotation, including:
- How to evaluate the reliability of gene models produced by gene prediction software.
- How to evaluate functional predictions produced by annotation software.
- What are the Gene Ontology and PAMGO.
- How to use the Gene Ontology to accurately describe the functions of gene products.
The afternoon of the second day was devoted to hands-on experience in annotation of genes with GO/PAMGO terms.
