Annotation

Annotation is the process of assigning GO terms to gene products. The annotation data in the GO database is contributed by members of the GO Consortium, and the Consortium is continuously encouraging new groups to start contributing their annotations. The list of links below offer details on the GO annotation policies and the annotation process, as well as direct users to other pages of interest on GO annotation conventions, the standard operating procedures used by some consortium members, and the GO annotation file format guide.
