Items for August newsletter

(below are leftovers from previously suggested topics)

  • Orthology establishment for the Reference Genomes MODs genes - Princeton group
  • Announcement of new disjoint_from tags in gene_ontology.obo file (Jane)
      • DO WE REALLY WANT TO DO THIS? There are still a few disjoint violations in the ontology.
    • also mention that SO has them now too between the top nodes and between region and junction
  • ID mapping resources
    • see email thread on GOfriends, started May 14 2008

Items for future newsletters

  • Midori has suggested we have a whole newsletter devoted to x-products. We haven't yet decided whether this will replace or be in addition to the regular newsletter release:
Dear newsletter-ers,                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                      
I've had an idea for a future newsletter: how about a special issue                                                    
devoted entirely to cross-products? Chris has generated a lot of sets to                                               
review lately, and we'll deploy them in the live GO before too long.                                                   
Keeping our users fully informed will take more than an ordinary article                                               
in an ordinary newsletter.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                      
Some possible articles:                                                                                                
                                                                                                                      
- What are cross-products, and how do we represent them in GO files?                                                   
(Chris?)                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                      
- What do we gain by using xps? (Midori & David?)                                                                      
                                                                                                                      
- What GO terms and other ontologies will be used in xps? (Midori, David,                                              
Chris?)                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                      
- What will xps look like in AmiGO? (Seth, Amelia?) (maybe a pretty                                                    
screenshot??)
