The purpose of this page is to find methods to check the quality of the GO annotations. There are four types of errors that we would like to find easily:

  1. Omission of annotations
  2. Problems in the ontology
  3. Varying granularity of annotations
  4. Incorrect annotations

Omission of annotations

Problems in the ontology

Varying granularity of annotations

Possible causes:

  • New (more granular) term was created since the annotation was made.

How to address this: Should we warn curator when a more granular term is created an their database have annotations to the parent term?

  • Curator feels they do not have the expertise to annotate a gene.

How to address this: Better communication: SF annotation tracker, email, wiki

Incorrect annotations

Errors during annotations. How to address this:
