  22. Fission Yeast Community Curation: Valerie Wood ran a community curation pilot project for fission yeast, by sending forms to researchers to complete for a recent publication. The initial trial of 20 publications had a 95% response rate demonstrating that the fission yeast community is willing to participate actively in the curation process. See the pilot summary at http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Projects/S_pombe/community_curation.shtml. Eight SF items were also raised for new biology, or ontology issues. The pilot will be extended to 50 laboratories within one month. The hope is to get funding to develop a simple community curation interface as part of the fission yeast grant proposal. We believe that this initiative presents a significant cost-effective opportunity to enhance the efforts of core curation staff at low cost.

He also wishes to offer workshops to the community on how to do the higher level annotations in their respective regions of interest. He has been put in contact with Tanya Berardini at TAIR and Fiona McCarthy as AgBase to follow this up.
  26. WormBase: The sea urchin database staff are in touch with WormBase (they are on the same campus at Caltech). To begin with, they are interested in doing InterPro2GO mappings for their proteins, and intend later to submit a gene association file.
  27. RGD: Jennifer Smith at RGD produced and released an introductory video tutorial entitled "Introduction to Biomedical Ontologies #1: What is an Ontology?". It is available on both SciVee (http://www.scivee.tv/node/11759) and Vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/5344028). The intended target audience is researchers and students who are largely, or completely, unfamiliar with ontologies, and the example that is used to illustrate ontologies, ontology annotations and ontology browsers (including AmiGO) is GO.

Project-Generated Resources

  1. The Gene Ontologies: As of Dec. 2009, the Gene Ontologies include Molecular Function (8,657 terms), Biological Process (17, 553 terms), and Cellular Component (2,613 terms). The ontologies including definitions are available at the GO Web site in a variety of formats including OWL, RDF, XML, and OBO.
  2. The Sequence Ontology is provided for download in 4 different forms. It is provided for editing as so-xp.obo which includes the raw cross product terms, and is intended for use with a reasoner. It is provided fully reasoned with the implicit links fully written out, for use without a reasoner as so.obo. Two subsets of SO are maintained for specialized uses: a version for natural language programming (l_s_f.obo) and subset of SO feature for automated annotation pipelines (sofa.obo).
  3. GO Associations files for the major model organisms are provided in OBO, tab delimited and XML formats that include evidence assertions, citations, synonyms and other accIDs and Xrefs.
  4. The GO Database is developed and maintained by software engineers located in the Stanford and LBNL GO groups. The MySQL database, API documentation, schema diagrams and full descriptions of all tables are freely available at http://www.godatabase.org/dev/database/. GO monthly releases are available in RDF XML or a MySQL database dump.
  5. GO Consortium Tools are the AmiGO browser for the GO database resource and the OBO-Edit ontology editing tool; both are open-source applications (http://www.geneontology.org/GO.tools.html).
  6. Many GO Tools for mining GO data have been developed and can be accessed from the GO Web Site. Tools can map granular GO terms to more general parent terms, and can facilitate the access to GO information from gene-set input files. Several are particularly useful for analysis of microarray data.
  7. GO Browsers: Several browsing tools have been developed and are available via the GO Web site. The AmiGO browser is provided by the GOC for access to the GO database.
  8. GO Teaching Resources include tutorials, presentations and posters provided by members of the GO Consortium (http://www.geneontology.org/GO.teaching.resources.html).
  9. Indices mapping other classification systems to the GO provided at the GO Web site include translations of Swiss-Prot keywords, TIGR/EGAD, GenProtEC, InterPro keywords, and the Enzyme Commission set. (http://www.geneontology.org/GO.indices.html).
