Ontology files and GAFS
I'd like a discussion of taxon IDs and subspecies. --JimHu 17:28, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Making ext GO 'main'
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. [Jane]
New column in GAF- Annotation Method
Proposal to add a new column to the GAF to indicate if an annotation was reviewed by a curator or no.
Alternative proposal from CJM to extend Evidence codes to support chains of evidence
- Also need to discuss references for PAINT annotations. Will one generic reference work?
Mechanics of file dissemination
I'd like to discuss the use of ftp rather than CVS for disseminating GAFs, gp2protein and other files (Tony S)
Guidelines for 'binding' terms
Discuss guideline documentation, progess 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'?
- What, if any, binding term annotations can be transferred via ISS/ISO?
30th/31st: end of afternoon.
Participants in newly-formed annotation working groups (formed for the June GO Camp) to gather together to begin to discuss issues 
Discussion on how ontology development relates to annotations
- scope of regulation relationship
- clarifying what 'regulation' terms mean from an annotator/ontology developer perspective (David, 18 slides)
- scope of has_part relationship
