The GO Consortium collaborates with many other groups on a wide variety of topics, particularly with groups whose expertise in specific areas of biology, or a complementary ontology project, would help to improve the usefulness of the GO resource. We welcome your feedback and contributions. Please let us know if you are interested in a possible collaboration.
