Fungal Genetics Meeting

Maria Costanzo, Karen Christie, and Rama Balakrishnan (SGD staff)
Short GO workshop
March 23rd - Fungal Genetics Meeting
Asilomar, CA

  • Attended by about 30-35 people, and well received.
  • Many new fungal genomes being sequenced, some of them are ready to start annotating using GO.
  • Questions from the audience throughout the workshop, and more afterwards on various aspects of GO and how it related to fungal genomes.
  • Talks organized to give a big picture of GO in the context of overall genome annotation.
  • Summarized how to go from raw sequence to making structural annotations, to making GO annotations for the gene or gene product.
  • Brett Tyler (PAMGO) presented a couple of slides on how their group worked with GO to develop new GO terms for host-pathogen interactions. Slides emphasized community involvement in GO development.
  • We mentioned shortcomings in secondary metabolism term development and that we will be happy to work with the community to develop that part of the ontology.
