- Requirements for With information when using certain evidence codes (evidence code committee)
- Mention availability of the Annotation SOP/Flowcharts
- Muscle and cardio content meeting work
From Jen's email: There have recently been two content meetings to improve the cardiovascular physiology and muscle-related parts of the GO graph. The cardiovascular physiology meeting was held by RGD at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the muscle meeting was held by the TRAIT database at the University of Padova in Italy. In the cardiovascular physiology effort 119 new terms were added and 23 terms were modified. Further details of the work can be found at http://gocwiki.geneontology.org/index.php/Cardiovascular_physiology/development In the muscle effort 159 new terms were added and 57 terms were modified. Further details of the work can be found at http://wiki.geneontology.org/index.php/Muscle_Development
- Cardiovascular Gene Ontology Annotation Initiative
A new University College London based Cardiovascular Gene Ontology Annotation initiative started on 1 November 2007. The project is supported by the British Heart Foundation, and aims to prioritize the annotation of human genes associated with the cardiovascular system, in order to provide full Gene Ontology annotation to genes associated with cardiovascular processes.

- GOA would like to announce their new Swiss-Prot subcellular location2GO (SPSL2GO) electronic mapping which will be in the next release.
Text from Rachael: New Subcellular Location2GO mapping (spsl2go). The GOA group are pleased to announce that in collaboration with Serenella Ferro Rojas of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, we are able to offer a new external database mapping file. Subcellular Location terms from the Comment (CC) lines of UniProtKB entries have been manually mapped to GO terms. The new mapping has been applied electronically to enhance the electronic (IEA coded) GO annotation in our latest GOA release. This mapping has provided XXXXXXX new associations with XXXXXXX proteins. The spsl2go mapping file is available from the GOA ftp site (ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/GO/goa/external2go/spsl2go) and the Gene Ontology Consortium website (http://www.geneontology.org/external2go/spsl2go). The GO reference for this mapping is GO_REF:0000023.
