The purpose of the Software and Utilities group (SWUG) is to support both the GOC and the user community with technical, software, bioinformatics and computer-science related matters. In addition, this group will help drive the GOC through the research and provision of new computational technologies and methodologies relating to ontologies and ontology-based data analysis. This group is responsible for creating, clarifying and extending the common model that underpins all of GO. Ontology development tools are necessary for the Ontology Development group to perform its function. In addition, the Annotation Outreach group and wider community need means of exploring and utilizing GO and existing annotations. This group complements all the other groups.

Reference Genome Software Prototype

Sohel Merchant has created a prototype as support for the Reference Genome Annotation Project. Currently the project data is managed by means of a google spreadsheet that is difficult to use. The new database and interface will allow the administrator to enter new target genes and for the model organism curators to call their orthologs and to track curation progress of each gene.
