Authoritative Database Groups

Authoritative Database Groups Where two or more databases are submitting data on the same species the GO Consortium encourages the model whereby one database group collects all annotation data for that species, removes the redundant (duplicate) annotations, and then submits the total dataset to the central repository. This ensures that no redundant annotations will appear in the master dataset. The table below documents those species for which a single database group is responsible for collating and submitting annotations. The format of the IDs used by these database groups can be found in the list of GO database abbreviations. For converting between different ID types, please see the tools for ID mapping on the GO wiki. More information on authoritative database groups and avoiding redundancy can be found in the GO annotation policies and guidelines.
