Many groups associated with and outside the GOC consume the resources produced by GO, such as the gene_ontology_edit.obo file and the association files. Any major changes to these files are signaled in advanced on the gofriends list. We also would like to track the persons in charge of the technical aspects of the various different MOD databases in order to make sure they are prepared for forthcoming changes.

E. coli

E. coli has no single MOD. Several comprehensive database efforts are out there. The major ones in the US include

  • EcoCyc. Peter Karp, SRI
  • EcoGene Kenn Rudd, Miami
  • ASAP. There are two ASAP sites.
    • ERIC BRC John Greene, SRA. This is part of the NIAID-funded BRC program.
    • ASAP Nicole Perna, Wisconsin
  • EcoliHub Barry Wanner, Purdue. EcoliHub is supposed to help researchers find things among the many redundant E. coli sites.
    • EcoliWiki is the community curation component of EcoliHub. Jim Hu, Texas A&M (jimhu at tamu.edu). Jim Hu and Debby Siegele at EcoliWiki are working with GOC on Reference Genomes.

Additional information about other E. coli databases can be found at the EcoliHub website. User curation of the list of E. coli databases can be done at EcoliWIki
