GO Release Pipeline

  • January release out
  • Error reports -
    • We have just ‘launched’ the project to produce GO rules reports by ‘assigned by’ rather than being the output of the file parser, see:
    • Are there additional requirements from curators?
      • Curators would still like to see error reports based on submitting group (it can be helpful to see other groups' annotations for the organism(s) your group is responsible for)
      • May need to clarify who is responsible for some older groups' (retired sources) annotations, e.g. TAIR and TIGR
      • For inactive groups with multi-species annotations, should we consider parsing these out by organism?
      • Could we also generate custom reports for groups depending on what annotations they're responsible for?
      • In the future, we could also possibly generate curator-specific reports (using annotation properties in the GPAD file).



Use of GO in other Ontologies

  • Some discussion about use of GO BPs in other ontologies, particularly for defining phenotypes
  • If terms are removed from GO, there needs to be another way to logically define some pheontpyes
  • UPheno group will discuss this
  • Other ontologies that use GO for this?


Format of annotation review spreadsheets

Annotation error reports and annotation review

  • Currently, 195 open annotation review tickets
  • Please remember to keep checking the reports generated by the pipeline and address any errors
  • Also check annotation review tickets assigned to you/your group in go-annotation repo on github
