GO-CAM and Noctua Calls
Note that as of 2020, we are no longer distinguishing GO-Annotation and GO-CAM/Noctua calls.
We will meet regularly on Tuesdays at 8am PST to discuss annotation issues related to both standard and GO-CAM annotation.
Agenda and Minutes
GO Annotation on GitHub
- The Gene Ontology uses an issue tracker hosted on GitHub to record and track annotation issues.
- The go-annotation repo on GitHub may be accessed here.
- Contact information for each group that contributes to the consortium is available here
GO Annotation on gitter
- The GO annotation group uses gitter as an informal chat service.
- Curators are free to ask questions or share ideas on gitter, with issues elevated to more formal tracking (i.e. github/go-annotation or wiki documentation), as needed.
- Curators can login to gitter using their github accounts.
GO Annotation on Google Drive
- The Gene Ontology uses Google drive to host notes and spreadsheets for annotation review and annotation working groups.
- The GO Annotation folder on Google Drive may be accessed here.
GO Consortium Mailing List
- Reminders about conference calls are sent to the go-consortium mailing list.
- To subscribe to the go-consortium mailing list, please click here.
