Ontology Development Contributions
Debby and Jim have been contributing to ontology development and discussions on electron transport and binding terms. Brenley has been involved in the virus ontology term development.
Annotation Outreach and User Advocacy Efforts
EcoliWiki puts a list of Reference Genome genes on the homepage each month. EcoliWiki also emails recent authors and requests participation in GO annotation.
The Gene Ontology Normal Usage Tracking System (GONUTS) is a web-based resource for researchers using Gene Ontology (GO) terms and GO. It has expanded from focusing on documentation of GO terms to also become a valuable online database for organisms without their own MOD (model organism database), such as Gallus gallus .
2. CACAO (Community Assessment of Community Annotation with Ontologies)
We are developing an undergraduate annotation course using GO terminology and GONUTS to help students learn the annotation process and study bioinformatics.
