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.

The Gene Ontology project very much encourages input from the community into both the content of the GO and annotation using GO. We are very happy to work with others to ensure that the GO is both complete and accurate, and we also very much encourage communities to submit GO annotations for inclusion in the GO database.
