  Items in progress, assigned to editorial office	71

The big jump in items closed outside GO-Ed is due to two factors: (1)
Alex committed the immunology revisions, which touched on several
items; and (2) SGD curators have resumed active editing.

Of the closed items, 5 came from reference genome annotation.

See monthly report in CVS for ontology statistics.

Erika's project:
  Erika has approval from her supervisors to work on 'response to
    drug' terms, and she's come up with a plan: GSK has a tool for
    identifying drugs of interest, which she'll use to figure out
    which substances should be represented in GO terms. She'll propose
    terms to Jen, who will do an initial check and then forward to
    other curators for additional comments. The usual GO procedures
    take over from there.
  Erika and her supervisor have also proposed a content meeting on
    muscle development, which would be held in Italy.
