Items for May newsletter

  • AmiGO release
Starting in March 2008, the following enhancements and new features were made available in 
AmiGO (http://amigo.geneontology.org), 
the web application that allows browsing and visualization of the ontologies and annotations from multiple species:
 Better search interface and results
 Result ranking
 More and improved download options
 Visual enhancements (graphs, bar charts, etc.)
 Term Enrichment
 Slimmer
  • Orthology establishment for the Reference Genomes MODs genes - Princeton group

(below are leftovers from Feb2008 suggested topics)

  • Any topics in Ontology Development?
  • 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

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??)
