Call in info


NYC Meeting Agenda


  • How do the priorities of the Alliance GO working group align with the priorities of the GOC overall?
  • What are the most important things for GO to do in the next six months?


Working Groups/Projects

GO Curation Survey

Discussion Action to Survey monkey, make changes discussed, and send it around

Expanded Set of Relations

  • Implementation requirements to meet our May goal of at least having acts_upstream_of_or_within
    • Guidelines/examples for use
      • acts upstream of: sperm motility, lipidation of ras, glycine transport -> heme biosynthesis
      • regulation: glycolysis, signaling
      • involved in: F-P links
      • make use of other F-P co-annotation
      • other ontology relations could be used to devise rules
      • PAINT annotations
    • Have a mechanism for groups to propose new rules
    • Review annotations to process and regulation of process
      • Can Mary D. generate lists for all groups, put on a webpage for review?
    • Other software support needed for this?


  • David: should we make it clear that this is for existing annotations?
  • Chris: in the NYC agenda there is a more up to date version of these relations, see
  • Wiki links to RO and RO links back to the wiki pages
  • LOTS of discussion - we need to schedule a few calls before the GOC meeting to sort this out. We're not ready to bring this to the group yet.

Protein Complexes

HTP Codes

RCA Evidence Code

  • Need to work with several groups to review their annotations:
    • Gramene (35815 annotations)
    • As an example, 2929 RCA Molecular Function annotations
      • Date: 20060831
      • Reference: GR_REF:8030
      • Manual review of mappings; can we suggest ISM?
    • GeneDB
      • Some annotations from reviews, but some to papers that describe a systems analysis that is probably more in line with the original intent of RCA
      • RCA -> CCA (combined computational analysis)??
    • EcoCyc
    • AgBase
    • AspGD
  • If we decide to keep RCA, then we'd need to remove the one-year limit; it doesn't make sense.



Working Group Meetings

  • Quarterly?
    • Rotate between ontology and annotation (small, focused groups)
    • Test virtual meetings, but still focused on the task


1.0 Rollout

  • Merge Tremayne's fork with Noctua-dev for further testing
  • Some outstanding issues on SAE
  • Single source file for MODs to consume

Reactome Imports

  • David, Kimberly have looked at some imports/translations
  • Ben's work looks to be potentially very useful and promising for seeding templates, models
  • Will probably require significant manual input, refinement, testing

Announcing changes to the wider user community

This was brought up by Birgit in the protein complex merge ticket - she was suggesting we make an announcement. However we never made annoucements before (except for obsoletions); should we start? What would be the guidelines? For example when a merge affects more than 100, 1000 annotations ? EXP only ?

Term Genie status

This keeps on coming up at the Ontology call. What's the status ?
