Usage metrics

  • particularly usage of enrichment analysis and compare to DAVID stats - see 2017 progress report for ideas
  • comparative enrichment output papers
  • GO should provide more information about literature coverage in curation, so that users are better-informed about potential gaps and progress in annotation.

QC group

Important points from the 2015 SAB report

Organization of the GOC

    • Goals
    • GOC projects and resources

      • show impact using one of Suzi's TCGA cancer pathways


      • Ask David H to report MGI's experience with Noctua

Capella: paper viewer tool

Broader community initiatives

    • Developer community: R packages for GO (technical outreach)
    • Draft some best practices for the developer community (See also paper - reproduciblity with GO PMID:29572502)
    • Best practices document for using GO, including GO enrichment (Paul)
    • Suggestion to have a “Certified GO tool developer” program with badges (not implement but what do people think ? can we also do that for curators?
    • Can GO partner with other enrichment tools beyond panther?
    • Make GO data available via web services to help people keep their data up to date (ongoing)
    • What is the future of https://github.com/cmungall/term-enrichment-protocol for standardizing among various enrichment tools? (not updated since 2014)
    • Create an index of external tools that have been evaluated by key standard metrics and this could translate into a gold star rating system on the GO website -> No resources to do that

Outreach group


  • How do the priorities of the Alliance GO working group align with the priorities of the GOC overall?
  • What are the most important things for GO to do in the next six months?


Questions we'd like to ask

  • Should we push out GO-CAMs into pathway databases like pathwaycommons, ndex, ...?
  • Are there other communities that the SAB recommends/suggests we connect with ?

Somewhat random items from managers call that we might want to raise with the SAB

  • Reactome import into Noctua
