Ontology Development & GO Editorial Office Report - March 2009

I. Ontology Development

  • SourceForge
    • Items opened: 108
    • Items closed: 94
      • Note: Due to changes in SourceForge's tracker system, the breakdown of SF items resolved by MOD curators, GO editorial office curators, and MOD-GOed collaborations cannot easily be determined for March 2009. Midori has submitted a feature request to have the relevant feature (ability to sort closed items by close date) restored, but there has been no response so far. From April onwards, a workaround would be possible but would take a lot more time.
    • Items still open: 272
      • assigned, GO Eds: 85
      • assigned, MOD curators: 127
      • unassigned: 60

The main thing for March, of course, has been preparation for and participation in the GO Consortium meeting in Eugene, Oregon. A progress report prepared for the meeting is available.

  • Presented at meeting:
  • Content items resolved
    • Several 'activator' and 'inhibitor' terms obsolete for consistency with obsolete function terms
    • Several SourceForge items resolved
  • Content items in progress (much the same as last month)
    • Additional work on cross-products within GO -- see Category:Internal_Cross_Products and Editors_cross-product_implementation_plan (David, Midori, Jane, Jen, Chris, Tanya)
    • Signal transduction overhaul continuing, as is content meeting planning (Jen, David, experts)
    • Planning continues for small content meeting for prokaryotic electron transport (Rob Gunsalus, working with Jen and rest of electron transport WG)
    • Cellular component organization and biogenesis almost done
    • Quality control reports generated by Chris (ongoing work)
      • Regulation - also see above (David, Tanya)
      • Multiple part_of parents (several GO curators, especially Tanya & David)
    • Various SourceForge items
  • Publications
    • Agreed to contribute a chapter on ontology development approaches used in GO, for book entitled Knowledge-Based Bioinformatics: From Analysis to Interpretation, edited by Marco Ramoni and Gil Alterovitz (our GO Engineering collaborators) (David, Tanya, Chris, Judy, maybe others as needed)
