The paper gives 10 principles for using GO and its annotations. Required reading for anyone consuming GO data!

New GO Consortium paper: update on the Cellular Component Ontology

We're happy to announce a new publication from the GO Consortium:
"The Gene Ontology (GO) Cellular Component Ontology: integration with SAO (Subcellular Anatomy Ontology) and other recent developments".
It is available at http://www.jbiomedsem.com/content/4/1/20

New GO Consortium paper published: A guide to GO manual annotation

We are pleased to announce a new paper from the GO Consortium: "A guide to best practices for Gene Ontology (GO) manual annotation." It is available at http://database.oxfordjournals.org/content/2013/bat054

We hope this guide will encourage research communities to annotate gene products of their interest to enhance the corpus of GO annotations available to all.

GO-ChEBI paper published!

The paper detailing integration of GO and ChEBI is now published:
"Dovetailing biology and chemistry: integrating the Gene Ontology with the ChEBI chemical ontology"
and is available at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2164/14/513

Final Renal GO Annotation Newsletter (April 2012)

Welcome to the final newsletter in the series. The Kidney Research UK funded Renal GO Annotation Initiative has now ended and the aims of the initiative have been achieved in providing the biomedical research community with an information-rich resource, which can be used to assist the rapid evaluation of new experimental data. A process-specific approach has led to improvements to both the ontology to describe renal processes (in particular, renal system development) and to the annotation of renal-specific gene products.
