  • GO Tops
    • the GO tops are going to have a grant renewal planning meeting in February
    • they are talking to Raja Mazumdar (Washington DC) about the next GOC meeting. There will be a SAB meeting also.
    • Chris asked about staff reduction in the ontology group and how we plan to readjust. This is going to be one of the items for discussion at the February GO tops meeting
    • Rama asked about status on protein2GO. There are several reasons why we need a point person at protein2GO (disputes, training etc). Rachael used to deal with lot of the protein2GO issues. Judy mentioned that they were going to talk about this also at the Feb meeting. But we might need to think about it sooner. Since Rachael and Rama were co-chairing the annotation group one option is to give Rama extra powers with protein2GO. Pascale, Rama and Kimberly will come up with a list of tasks that we need power for. This will help the GO tops to understand the needs.
