12:00 Annotation deliverables

  1. Discussion of the distinction between annotations distributed by the GOC and those from the MODs. (Mike, 15 min)
  2. Discussion on changing the policy on restricting taxon to specific GAF files. (Mike, 15 min)

12:30 Lunch

1:30 Overview of the outreach efforts

  1. Overview of the outreach efforts to specific scientific communities for community annotation by the BHF-UCL and TAIR teams as well as the CACAO (Community Assessment of Community Annotation with Ontologies) course by EcoliWiki (Ruth, Tanya and Jim; 10 mins each and 15 mins discussion)
  2. BHF-UCL team involved in annotating specific genes identified through GWAS or microarray (Ruth; 15 mins)

(Sarah Burge) (40 min presentation, 10 mins discussion)

  1. Brief summary of the revised guidelines for the GO mapping of InterPro entries.
  2. InterPro evidence requirements, new policy of mapping Domain, Site and Repeat entries, changes in coverage between the old and new approaches, occasions where InterPro is unable to GO map an entry and finally, the automatic checks to prevent taxonomy violations and assignment of redundant terms.

3:20 Break

3:30 Ontology development
