Browsing GO

Star.png AmiGO


AmiGO is the GO Consortium Browser that allows you to view the gene ontologies and annotations online.

Star.png QuickGO

Another GO browser, is developed by GOA, the GO Annotation group affiliated with UniProt at the EBI in Cambridge, UK.


The browser can be found here:

This browser is similar AmiGO but is very fast, and has an easy-access graph view similar to the one we have already seen in OBO-Edit. You can also search annotations in QuickGO using UniProt identifiers.

Send Us Your Ideas

Star.png Option 1

You can send your ideas for new GO terms or annotations directly to us by e-mail:

Midori: midori at
Jennifer: jdeegan at

Or via the GO-Help system: go-help at

Star.pngStar.png Option 2

Alternatively you can enter your suggestions in the online tracker systems which are linked from:

For Term requests use 'GO curator requests tracker'.
For Annotation ideas use 'GO annotation tracker'.

The advantage of using this system is that you can then easily take part in online discussions amongst the GO Consortium staff, and you will be automatically notified as terms are added.



The advantage of using OBO-Edit is that you can view and edit the ontology file that worked on at the muscle meeting long before our work is integrated into the live GO file. You can also carry out far more sophisticated searches than in the browsers above. The application is a little more time-consuming and technical to use than AmiGO as you have to download it and the ontology file. You also have do some installation and configuring if you want to use the graph view (shown above).
