'modified amino acid' merged into 'amino acid derivative'
A heads up that ChEBI effected the high-level change of merging CHEBI:25359 'modified amino acid' into CHEBI:83821 'amino acid derivative'
and that this change has now percolated to our files, resulting in dangling parent warnings.
This change only affects 5 terms. I think David OS was working on this, I haven't checked if there are tickets about this anywhere. If not, shall we edit these axioms manually, while we wait for the broader issue described below to be resolved:
Protein family binding term requests
Once and for all, clarify. This also follows up on Paola's email from Monday.
http://wiki.geneontology.org/index.php/Ontology_meeting_2015-03-05#How_to_define_protein_families_in_enzyme_binding_terms So the resolution is NOT to allow for protein family binding terms. If so, do we want to email the GO list and/or mention policy/procedure briefly at the next annotation call.
dph- I sent all of the pending requests to Paul T. I will report on his results.
And there is one protein binding term in the TG queue.
What's a protein complex and what isn't?
Spindle isn't, spindle midzone is. https://sourceforge.net/p/geneontology/ontology-requests/11521/
Spindle, GO:0005819: The array of microtubules and associated molecules that forms between opposite poles of a eukaryotic cell during mitosis or meiosis and serves to move the duplicated chromosomes apart.
Spindle midzone, GO:0051233: The area in the center of the spindle where the spindle microtubules from opposite poles overlap.

(Lower priority) future mini-projects
Do we have resources (and willingness) to work on autophagy, or on gene expression?
For autophagy, e.g. is this correct: autophagy is_a 'cellular catabolic process'? Should it be autophagy has_part cellular catabolic process?
For gene expression, see a recent thread here: https://sourceforge.net/p/geneontology/ontology-requests/11535/
