The purpose of the User Advocacy group is to establish lines of communication between the scientific community and the GO Consortium. The goal is to ensure that the GOC does not become insular and remains receptive to the needs of the scientific community. In addition, open lines of communication will increase the awareness and usefulness of GO in the scientific community.
