Annotation Contributions from External Groups (Kimberly)

  • How do we decide when to allow an external group to use Protein2GO (or any other annotation tool) for contributing annotations?
  • I've been working closely with a group that wants to submit lncRNA annotations and they would like to annotate a number of papers.
  • So far, we've been exchanging annotation data in a spreadsheet, but it would be easier to work with a curation tool.
  • Also, the group is annotating lncRNAs, but there is also protein data in the papers. Should we ask groups to curate everything in a paper or would we be okay with just taking a subset of annotations?
