Mappings of External Classification Systems to GO

The Gene Ontology is not the only attempt to build structured controlled vocabularies for genome annotation. To aid users, the GO Consortium provides mappings of its terms to those in a number of external vocabularies.


This will be the source for GO-related publications. Unfortunately, it is currently under construction, please check back soon.

GO Community

The work of the Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC) is only possible through collaborations among the members of a very active research community. Below are links to the Consortium's own projects and those conducted in collaboration with other research groups. Details about the GOC mailing lists, links to the GOC Wiki, and a list of contributing members are also available.

The Gene Ontology

The Gene Ontology project is a major bioinformatics initiative with the aim of standardizing the representation of gene and gene product attributes across species and databases. The project provides a controlled vocabulary of terms for describing gene product characteristics and gene product annotation data from GO Consortium members, as well as tools to access and process this data.
