SynGO - Synapse Biology

Overview

The Synapse Gene Ontology and Annotation Initiative (SynGO) aims to:
  • Improve the Gene Ontology to accurately describe cellular components (CC) and biological processes (BP) important for synapse biology
  • Provide expert curated annotations of pre- and postsynaptic genes using the improved Gene Ontology classes

SynGO is funded by the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute
