Annotation Quality Control
Annotation quality control checks ensure that GO annotations are of high quality. The annotation validation process includes both format checks on the raw data and tests of the quality of the data within the file.
GO Central rules are documented here: https://github.com/geneontology/go-site/blob/master/metadata/rules/README.md
- (Documentation in progress): https://github.com/geneontology/go-site/tree/master/metadata/rules
- The QC checks consist of either "filters" or "reports". Filters exclude annotations from the files that the GO consortium generates; reports allow the annotations to be exported, but contributing groups get notified to correct annotations.
