Annotation Discussion

ND Annotations

  • Automatic deletion of ND-evidenced annotations
  • ND annotations to a root node term are intended to signify that the curator looked at all available evidence and the MF, BP, or CC of a gene/gene product is not known
  • GOA proposed to remove ND annotations automatically from their curation database because this was not happening manually
    • Note that curators can only update or remove annotations from their respective groups in Protein2GO
    • Annotation from only a select set of evidence codes would result in automatic removal of ND annotations
   ECO:0000269 (EXP) and its descendants
   ECO:0006056 (HTP) and its descendants
   ECO:0000250 (ISS) and its descendants
   ECO:0000317 (IGC) and its descendants
  • Generally agreed that when there is experimental or sequence-based evidence for a more granular annotation, the ND annotation should be removed
    • However, 'protein binding' MF annotations are thought of differently by different groups and we need to reach a consensus about how these MF annotations should be considered wrt automatically removing existing MF ND annotations
  • Proposal: as part of QC pipeline, alert groups to genes/gene products that have an ND annotation and also an annotation to a more granular term (any evidence code?)
