20th Anniversary GO Meeting, Montreal, CA

  • Dates set for Oct 17-20 (Wednesday - Friday, special dinner Thursday night)

HTP Annotation Guidelines

  • Helen has added documentation on the use of HTP evidence codes to the wiki:
    • Guide to GO Evidence Codes
    • Annotation standards for HTP proteomics experiments
      • How best to capture the combination of a published paper's experiment combined with secondary curator evaluation using some other methodology? New combinatorial evidence code and paper plus a GO reference? (This would be a change to our reference practice.)
    • Review RCA evidence code - Please can the groups listed below review their RCA annotations and decide if they'd still like to keep them and if RCA is still the appropriate evidence code?
      • TAIR
      • MGI
      • SGD
      • RGD
      • CAFA

UniProt vs UniProtKB

  • UniProt = contributed by
  • UniProtKB = annotated entities
  • This ticket is still open - are we just waiting for groups to have their software team implement and the changes to make their way to the GO website?
  • Is everyone also using UniProtKB as a prefix in the With/From field?

20th Anniversary GO Meeting, Montreal, CA

  • Dates set for Oct 17-20 (Wednesday - Friday, special dinner Thursday night)
  • Any good ideas for GO 20th anniversary swag?


  • PAINT annotations - now being directly injected into GO Central
    • Will be screened out when they come back in from the MOD
  • Consumption of derived GPAD files from GO-CAM models
    • How will this pipeline work ? MGI will be the test case for this pipeline.


  • What information should be on the GOC website?
    • User-facing documentation (e.g. basic information about evidence codes)
    • More detailed documentation on the wiki


  • Should RCA annotations really be removed after one year?
  • If this evidence code really refers to analyses performed from a paper, is it reasonable to update?
