GO Annotation Meetings

2010 GO Annotation Camp in Geneva, Switzerland, June 16-18 2010

Guidelines from Annotation Camp

Annotation Meeting Stanford, CA, Feb 2012

Migration of annotating groups to Protein2GO

Procedure for migration of protein annotations to Protein2GO

Extension of Protein2GO to non-UniProtKB Identifiers


  • Keep all curators up-to-date with ontology development and how it affects annotations

How To?

How to load the ontology file into Obo-Edit tool directly from the web without downloading the file from cvs etc?

OBO-Edit can load files from the disk OR from a URL.
Choose the "File -> Load..." menu option
Choose the OBO File Adapter
Type into the filename box

To see the has_part relationships, use this URL for the extended GO version:

How to run Mike Cherry's filtering script locally before checking the GAF into SVN?

  • You need access to SVN to run the script locally. If you don't have access please write to
  • Familiarize yourself with SVN commands (
  • You need to check out the following files from SVN. The script will fail or will give you inaccurate reports if you don't have the current version of any of the files.

> svn --non-interactive --trust-server-cert --ignore-externals co svn+ssh:// go/ontology's password:
[this will co the entire directory]

> svn --non-interactive --trust-server-cert --ignore-externals co svn+ssh:// go/gene-associations/submission's password:
[this will co the entire directory]

>svn --non-interactive --trust-server-cert --ignore-externals co svn+ssh:// go/software/utilities's password:

> svn --non-interactive --trust-server-cert --ignore-externals co svn+ssh:// go/doc's password:

Now you have the necessary files to run the script in your space.

  • cd to the gene-associations/submission directory
>cd go/gene-associations/submission
>../../software/utilities/ -e -i gene_association.sgd.gz

You should see the filtering script report once the script runs through the file.
