Annotation Details and Downloads

The gene association files submitted by GO Consortium members are shown in the tables below. Files are in the GO annotation file format and are compressed using the UNIX gzip utility. Please see the appropriate README file for further details on the annotation set. Any errors or omissions in annotations should be reported by writing to the GO helpdesk.

Ontology and annotation data is integrated in the mySQL and XML files. See the GO database guide for more information.

These files can also be downloaded via FTP; we recommend this method for the larger files, such as the UniProt dataset, as the web-based download may not work correctly.

Filtered Files

These files are taxon-specific and reflect the work of specific projects, primarily the model organisms database groups, to provide comprehensive, non-redundant annotation files for their organism. All the files in this table have been filtered using the annotation file QC checks script. A major component to the filtering is the requirement that particular taxon IDs can only be included within the association files provided by specific projects; please see the list of the authoritative groups for the major model organisms.

Unfiltered Files

These files have not been filtered with the annotation file QC checks script. The most important difference between these files and the filtered files above is that gene products from certain taxa are not stripped out of the file; they may also contain annotations to obsolete terms or outdated IEA annotations. Please see the annotation file QC script documentation for full details of the checks performed.

Please note that if you use unfiltered files in conjunction with filtered files, there may be duplicated annotations.

In the tables above gene association counts are provided for all evidence codes and separately for everything except IEA, Inferred from Electronic Annotation. The IEA code means there has been no human involvement in the assignment of the association; see the GO evidence code documentation for more details.

gp2protein files

The gp2protein directory contains files that map between model organism database object IDs and UniProt accessions.
