Call next week?

Technically next week is the 'no meeting' week. However the week after, Jan 18th, is the Martin Luther King Jr. Day; who is off on Jan 18th?

Sequence Ontology in go-lego (for Noctua)

https://github.com/geneontology/go-ontology/issues/20419 Pascale working with Colin - right now we will use SO terms to create logical definitions for GO terms; maybe this will avoid the need to use SO in Noctua (which terms we can instantiate versus which we need to use as extensions is still under discussion) - to be revisited

(Compound) Molecular Functions -- BLOCKING FOR GO-CAM

Will continue after the holidays.

Cellular Component, ShEx, and GO-CAMs -- BLOCKING FOR GO-CAM

  • The ShEx specifications state that MFs can occur in an Anatomical Entity and that GPs or Protein-Containing Complexes can be located in an Anatomical Entity.
  • Most non-protein-containing complex GO CC terms are a child of Cellular Anatomical Entity which is a subclass of Anatomical Entity.
  • However, annotations to root Cellular Component result in ShEx violations because root Cellular Component is NOT a subclass of Anatomical Entity.
  • How do we fix this?
    • Change root Cellular Component annotations to Cellular Anatomical Entity (throughout GO)
    • Change ShEx value to an OR statement, for example: MF occurs_in AnatomicalEntity OR CellularComponent
    • Work on RO to see if there is a relation that could be used as a parent for all children of Cellular Component relations - overlaps?
      • Take this issue to the RO call(s)?
    • Move Protein-Containing Complex out of Cellular Component into its own GO aspect and make Cellular Component a subclass of Anatomical Entity
