PI discussion of next months' EBI-GO work plan

End of subcontract with EBI of February 2017 - influences work of EBI-GO (DOS, Paola, Melanie) team. Helen has proposed that EBI-GO will step off the GO rotas (GH, TG, Helpdesk) starting December 12th to allow wrap-up of existing tickets concomitantly with other tasks. David Hill (as Ontology Lead ) and GO PIs will discuss further with Helen.

Others funded by GOC are interested in training and joining Ontology Dev team - training being planned.

Note that TAIR's subcontract also ends at the end of Feb. 2017. TAIR/Phoenix plans to scale back involvement in day to day, non-plant related ontology work after March 1, 2017, stepping off the GH/TG rota, and scaling back GO Helpdesk participation to 2x/year.
