Results of user meeting survey

  • https://docs.google.com/forms/d/11BSWAs8G5vSEBOKubSNRIXNXyD3CYT586M2uX26FTc4/edit#responses
  • Most attendees filled out the survey relatively quickly after the meeting
  • 50% PhD student and post-docs; others were mostly staff scientists and PIs
  • Most people were working in bioinformatics, some bench scientists
  • Gene function and enrichment analyses were most common uses of GO
  • More targeted meetings about enrichment, data access and integration, APIs, curation would be helpful
  • It would also be interesting to know what the distribution of bench scientists vs bioinformaticians is at the Pasteur Institute

Discussion points from survey

  • Judy: bench scientists increasingly need to have skills in data analysis; we need to serve this community as well
  • David: should we have more than one type of users meeting depending upon who we're targeting/training?
  • Paul T: we need to know what questions people are trying to ask and answer by using GO
  • Paul T: what obstacles do people find when trying to use GO
