  3. who is tracking the teleconferencers?

Communication and Process for the GOC [Suzi]

  1. Changes in Managers structure
  2. Description of integrated team approach to annotation
  3. Increasing our efficiency in completing projects (using MF-BP and RefGenome as examples)
    1. Clear problem statement, what will the end result look like: Fuzziness = Failure
    2. Identify -a- project manager to oversee progress
    3. Establish project priority with respect to all other GOC projects
    4. Talk to all affected parties, revisit these groups as each new milestone is reached
      • Effective use of wiki and mailing lists
    5. Establish milestones and dependencies

Tuesday, March 30 – Morning [Break – Lunch]

Ref Genome Project and PAINT [Pascale and Kara]

  1. Current focus on process sets
  2. Update on Annotation
    • Curation: About eleven protein families have been done with beta version of PAINT, primarily by Mike Livstone in Kara's group at Princeton. slides.
    • References for PAINT annotations: One reference is available for each family's annotation.
  3. PAINT Software [Ed]
  4. Inferences from MF-BP links
  5. Need for MOD incorporation

Tuesday, March 30 Afternoon [After lunch - Break]

AMIGO updates/report (Seth)

  1. New search features
  2. PAINT-style displays in AmiGO
  3. Improved tree view

Ontology Updates

  1. Term additions from the ASCB and SDB meeting (6 slides, Tanya)
  2. Additions from the kidney and heart development meeting (14 slides, David)
  3. PAMGO (Jane)
  4. Cross products (18 slides, David)
    • Internal cross products

Wednesday, March 31 Morning – Break

Action Items Review (Judy)

  1. from last GOC
  2. from yesterday, Tuesday, March 30

Impact of recent ontology changes from an annotator/ontology developer perspective [David]

  1. MF-BP links, what they are and how they impact annotation
  2. Scope of regulation relationship
  3. Scope of has_part relationship

Evidence Codes

  1. NOT evidence codes
    1. "IMR" -> "Inferred from missing residues“ lacking domains, etc
    2. "IRD" -> "Inferred from rapid divergence“ sequences have rapidly diverged (e.g., paralogs)
    3. "IDS" -> "Inferred from descendant sequence(s)“ lack of function is annotated due to existing protein that have been previously annotated with lacking this function
  1. Proposal from CJM to extend Evidence codes to support chains of evidence
  2. Position of ISM
  3. RCA usage and documentation
  4. Notice of ISMB workshop on Assays, ECO and OBI [Judy]

Wednesday, March 31 Morning [Break – Lunch]

Annotation (Rama, Emily)

  1. Guidelines for 'binding' terms
  2. Discuss guideline documentation, progress and unresolved issues (Emily and Ruth; 12 slides).
    • Should we include transporters in these guidelines?
    • Should we capture drug information?
    • Should the guidelines include a statement suggesting that the specific substrate for an enzyme with 'GO:0032451 demethylase activity' can be included in column 16?
    • Should we create terms like ‘ATP binding involved in kinase activity'?
  3. Discussion of taxon IDs and subspecies [Jim Hu]
  4. Requirements and QC for contributed annotations [Rama]
    • M. tuberculosis example
  5. Ideas for incorporating IMEX data into GOC? [Emily]
  6. Plans for Geneva GO Annotation Workshop [Pascal]

Wednesday, March 31 Afternoon [Lunch - Break]

File Issues

  1. A suggestion from the OBO Foundry meeting: we make GO ext the main GO file, the one that new users see. The other files continue to exist in the same place, but make it clear they are legacy files. That way anyone new coming to GO will build tools using GO ext.
  2. Ease of file dissemination

GAF file

  1. GAF2 update
  2. Proposal to add a new column to the GAF to indicate if an annotation was reviewed by a curator or not.

Wednesday, March 31 Afternoon [Break - end of day]

  1. OBO-Foundry Report (Jane)
  2. Parking lot item discussions or catch-up reports
  3. Open forum on thoughts regarding upcoming competitive renewal applications
