Research groups may contribute to the Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC) by providing suggestions for updating the ontology (e.g. requests for new terms) or by providing annotations, that is, associations between genes or gene products and ontology terms. Suggested edits are reviewed by the ontology editors and implemented where appropriate.
The following pages explain how you can contribute to the project. Please begin by choosing whether you wish to contribute annotations or terms to the Gene Ontology.
