From Ranjana Kishore:
The sea urchin database people are in touch with WormBase (they are on the same campus as us, Caltech). Since now they have a stable genome, last week their programmer Dong He and I had a conversation, I pointed him to the relevant GO documentation. To begin with, they are interested in doing InterPro2GO mappings for their proteins. He will be in touch with me as things develop and I can assist them when they are ready to submit an annotation file to the GO consortium.
