Ontology Development

From GO Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This group's purpose is to ensure that the Gene Ontology represents biology in a way that is useful for gene product annotation of reference genomes and other MODs using the GO for annotation. The group serves as the link between biological knowledge that is gained from wet-bench scientists and the representation of that knowledge in the GO. Members of the group are responsible for reporting areas of the GO that need development and for suggesting changes and additions to the GO as needs arise. Members of the group serve as biological experts in domains that are covered by their organism. They are responsible for reviewing changes to be sure that they accurately reflect our current understanding of biology.
