Individual Manager reports

  1. Ontology Development
  • Regulation: many relationship fixes; ready to deploy 'regulates' relationship; draft announcement email on wiki:
  • Chris: summary of achievements: repositioned many of the is_a relationships so that they are more accurate, ie structure of the graph is improved. This allows better statistical analyses using the GO. Would be nice to quantify this, for example by taking papers that used GO and repeat analyses and see if results are better. Added >900 relationships.
