GO Database

The GO database is a relational database comprised of the GO ontologies as well as the annotations of genes and gene products to terms in the those ontologies. Housing both the ontologies and the annotations in a single database allows powerful queries of the annotations using the ontology. The GO database is the source of all data available through the legacy AmiGO 1.8 browser and search engine.

The GO database is maintained as a MySQL database, built at regular intervals. GO database builds can be downloaded and installed on a local machine or can be queried remotely.
