M. tuberculosis annotations
Manual annotations for M. tuberculosis were sent to GOA for possible integration into their database. There are approx. 6000 annotations of which ~3000 are from high-throughput papers. Rama and Rachael checked many of the annotations which were of high-quality. After discussion with the GO managers it was decided that they were appropriate for inclusion into the GOA database. The annotations will be released as part of GOA's September release.
